I've made a batch file to make starting a game I have backed up as an MDF easier. I hope to make more of these eventually, but I can't even get this one to work. The program first triggers Alcohol 120% to mount the image. Next it triggers A.C.I.D. to cloak my drives. After this I have inserted a pause, so that once I am done with the game I can press any key and unmount and shutdown A.C.I.D.. The program works fine when A.C.I.D. is running before I launch it, but this is usually not the case. When A.C.I.D. is not yet running, the bat hangs after starting A.C.I.D.. It never executes the rest of my code, so I never get the "press any key to continue prompt". My only theory is that the batch file is waiting for feedback from A.C.I.D. that it only gets if it the program was running ahead of time, but this is really just a guess. I suppose I could just create another batch file to start A.C.I.D. and call that file from my original, but there has to be a better way of doing this. Any thoughts?
