How to use batch file to register DLLs or to move or copy files


Batch file scripts below will register DLLs, copy or moved files.

Be careful in moving files as it would overwrite if there is an existing file on the destination folder.
  
This batch file script below would register DLL files in a specified folder.

REM Start Copy Here
REM Register DLL files
@echo off
set cnt=0
for %%v in (C:\MyCustomApp\*.dll) do (
   regsvr32 /s "%%v"
   call set /a cnt=%%cnt%%+1
   )
echo Total dlls found and registered = %cnt%
REM End of Batch File


Using same batch file it can be tweak to copy any specified files to a particular folder.

If you have a folder with PDF, Excel Files or other documents.

And you just want to copy files or move files to another folder, batch scripts below would help.

This simple batch file below would copy files to a specified folder.

REM Start Copy Here
REM Copy PDF Files to another folder
@echo off
set cnt=0
for %%v in (d:\MixFilesFolder\*.pdf) do (
   copy "%%v" "d:\AllPDF"
   call set /a cnt=%%cnt%%+1
   )
echo Total PDFs files copied and found = %cnt%
REM End of Batch File

If copied successfully, this output below would appear on the screen.
D:\>copyx.bat
        1 file(s) copied.
        1 file(s) copied.
        1 file(s) copied.
        1 file(s) copied.
        1 file(s) copied.
        1 file(s) copied.
        1 file(s) copied.
        1 file(s) copied.
Total Txts files copied and found = 8


To move files using batch file, see code snippet below.

REM Start Copy Here
REM Move PDF Files to another folder
@echo off
set cnt=0
for %%v in (d:\MixFilesFolder\*.pdf) do (
   move /Y "%%v" "d:\AllPDF"
   call set /a cnt=%%cnt%%+1
   )
echo Total PDFs files moved and found = %cnt%
REM End of Batch File

move /Y "%%v" "d:\AllPDF" - will supress prompting to confirm overwrite

move /-Y "%%v" "d:\AllPDF" - will prompt to overwrite the file

If move /-Y is used the user will be prompt to overwrite the file (see sample output below)

D:\>movex
        1 file(s) moved.
        1 file(s) moved.
        1 file(s) moved.
        1 file(s) moved.
        1 file(s) moved.
        1 file(s) moved.
Overwrite d:\c1\x.txt? (Yes/No/All):

If move /Y is used it will suppress the warning and just overwrite the file.

To create a batch file copy the script above save it to a notepad.

Click on File, click on “Save As” then enclosed the file name with quotation marks and with  “.bat” extension. Like, "MyBatchScript.bat"

To move directories, using the using the "move" command.

Do a "dir /x" and redirect the contents to a text file.

Dir /x - will display short names, so even directories will long file names will not be an issue.

Like, d:\dir /x  > file.txt -- will list the short names of the directories and redirect to  file.txt.

Then this one line command can do the job to move the directories specified on the file:

To test whether the batch file can read the text file do:

FOR /F  %%i  IN (file.txt)  DO Echo "%%i"  

This line below will move the directories to "d:\MyMixFolder", or change it to a desired location. FOR /F  %%i  IN (file.txt)  DO Move /Y  "%%i"  "d:\MyMixFolder"

But the output of "dir /x > file.txt", contains some other unnecessary lines or data, remove lines that are not needed and the file should only contain the short names of the directories.
 

Cheers!!! Hope you find it useful.

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.
A simple rule of thumb before any disaster strike, don't interchange the source and the destination.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.

Copy files with selected file extension using PowerShell and Robocopy:

$extension = ('.pdf', '.jpg', '.txt')
gci d:\WorkFolde…

WMIC get computer name

WMIC get computer model, manufacturer, computer name and  username.
WMIC is a command-line tool and that can generate information about computer model, its manufacturer, its username and other informations depending on the parameters provided.
Why would you need a command line tool if there’s a GUI to check?
If you have 20 or 100 computers, or even more. It’s quite a big task just checking the GUI to check the computer model and username.
If you have remote computers, you need to delegate someone in the remote office or location to check.
Or you can just write a batch file or script to automate the task.
Here’s the code below on how get computer model, manufacturer and the username.
Open an elevated command prompt and type:
wmic computersystem get "Model","Manufacturer", "Name", "UserName"
Just copy and paste the code above, the word “computersystem” does not need to be change to a computer name.
A sample output below will be generated if the co…
