Batch File Execution error

Please I need help!
I have been on this stuff for over hours now..and no headway out.

I want to write a batch script that can run tshark as shown below
.................................................................................................... ............................................................
@echo off

Start "" "C:\Mytraces\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark -i 1 -a duration:60 -t r -t ad -b filesize:100000 -b files:10 -w usingbatchsetup.pcap
.................................................................................................... .............................................................

But I got errors and the final one being...

.................................................................................................... ................................................................
windows cannot find "C:\Mytraces\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark -i 1 -a duration:60 -t r -t ad -b filesize:100000 -b files:10 -w usingbatchsetup.pcap" make sure you type the name correctly, then try again.
.................................................................................................... ................................................................
Please what can I do....?

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Remove this part:

Start "" "C:\Mytrace.....

so the line should start with:
"C:\Mytrace

Move the closing quotation mark to the end of the file to be run:
"C:\Mytraces\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark"

You should not need a closing quotation mark after all of those parameters and switches.

Thank you, it worked.

"C:\Mytraces\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark" -i 1 -a duration:60 -t r -t ad -b filesize:100000 -b files:10 -w usingbatchsetup.pcap

Thanks pretty much....

I want to autorun this file in windows task schedule, but encountered error....
and when I attempted to "run with highest privilege", I can't find the output file.

Please what can I do, where can I find the file?

Can you find the output file when you run the batch file manually? (Using "run as admin".)

I could not find the file(s) manually, but I had a workaround that gave me access to the file... using the following command

C:\Fighting\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark" -i 1 -a duration:108 -t r -t ad -b filesize:10 -b files:100 -w C:\Fighting\%computername%__%dt%_%tm%.pcap

I was able to provide an output path.

Thanks
