I have created working AutoUnattend file for windows 10 which has the following command working


cmd /c FOR %i IN (C D E F G H I J K L N M O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %i:\AppsRoot.txt SETX AppsRoot %i:\ -m


However i want to run this command manually though a .bat file on machines which have not been installed though my autounattend file.


However if i put this command into a .bat it will not execute. (the brackets on the command dont seem to work)

However if i put this command into command prompt directly it will work.


Exact same command one is just manually put into command prompt and one is in a bat file...

Running from a batch file you would need this:

FOR %%i IN (C D E F G H I J K L N M O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\AppsRoot.txt SETX AppsRoot %%i:\ -m

Note the double percent characters
