sometimes the scripts that used to work perfectly well – suddenly start to miss behave – but you HAVE NOT altered them!

look closely to the directory they reside in… maybe something in the dir has changed!

make sure:

  1. your script is not named like a build-in command or programm
  2. make sure the scripts your script calls are not named like a build-in command or programm

e.g. if your script is called: reeeeeboooot.bat that calls shutdown -t 10 -r, but in the SAME FOLDER resides a shutdown.cmd

reeeeeboooot.bat will actually call shutdown.cmd INSTEAD of the build-in command.

sometimes the easiest things are the hardest. (pretty often actually :-D)
