A batch file is just the same as a command prompt. It reads a command, executes it and reads the next command. Moreover, it offers language elements for decisions (IF) and jumps (GOTO), and (those 2 taken together) loops.
Things you can't do from the command prompt (running a file for 5 seconds), run 2 files simultaneously) can't be done from a batch file either. You'll need other tools.
i am trying to create a new .bat file to run 4 other .bat and .vbs files in an order and i would like to know the code for it. this is the order
run file 1 for 5 seconds then run file 2. end file 2 and start file 3 and 4 together
