Thanks for the comments sofar. However this command does not execute the batch file:

(w32-shell-execute "open" "z:\00_Preferences\Emacs\emacsW32.bat")


ECHO "Emacs - Win32 Batch Execution File "

SET PATH=%PATH%; C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Acrobat; C:\Program Files\Ghostgum\gsview;C:\Program Files\gs\gs8.56\bin;C:\Program Files\Mozilla_Firefox;C:\Program Files\SAS\SAS 9.1;C:\Program Files\Tinn-R\bin
start thunderbird.exe
start firefox.exe
start explorer.exe


On the other side, I can start the batch file with C-x d RET ! when I am in dired.

What do I do wrong?

Thanks for advice,

Hi, there!

I'd like to start some windows applications which constitute my working environment (e.g. firefox.exe or mysettings.bat) when I start emacs.
How can I do that using the regular MS Windows CMD-shell?
Is there also a way to set MS Windows environment variables in your .emacs or the called .bat file?

Thanks for your help in advance,
