Unable to guess the reasons. Is there ANY output produced when you run this script?

I'm not a batch file expert, but do you REALLY need to use batch file only? If not I highly recommend using something like Cygwin and do the same using a shell script instead.

I also understand that in newer Windows there is something called PowerShell, which is better programmable.


Hi, actually no, i don't get any msg, or anything poiting a reason or error.
All i need is to be able to change the name of any file from a batch file.
by the way, am i posting this thread in the wrong topic? i am new in this site.
another question, does daniweb deals with batch programming?
