|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the AUTOEXEC.BAT article.|
If OK with everyone else, I'll formulate a quick example AUTOEXEC.BAT and pop it in. I've noticed the CONFIG.SYS piece has an example, I think this would benefit from one too.
Let me know if anyone has any objections.
- I guess it would be okay, but dont make it big. Try to keep it simple and small.
OK thanks. Apologies for not including my signature last time - a little oversight.

- Meaning no offense, I have taken the liberty of posting an example of the autoexec.bat file myself because it's been several months now and no examples have been posted.
- Also, I find it rather strange to consider my usage of autoexec.bat on Windows Xp "exotic." Are you sure about that? -Caudax 03:22, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
I've tidied up autoexec.bat and config.sys, and added a category tag to io.sys. Gave the two pages a similar look and feel. One of the major issues with the WIKI, is a lack of consistent editing, so I always try and sync comparable pages to a similar format. Some minor errors, Windows ME applied settings through the registry, although there is an unofficial hack to work round that. Keep up the good work all. Timharwoodx 22:46, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
Autoexec.bat exists in Windows NT up to XP (don't know about 2003 Server and Vista), although it's empty and does not get parsed during boot. CannibalSmith 14:29, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
Yes, autoexec.bat exists in Windows XP but as AUTOEXEC.NT file. Also config.sys exists as CONFIG.NT - open these files in Notepad and you will see differences ;)
