Batch file not waiting for command to finish before moving on
Hiya, i wasn't really sure where to put this, and i have Googled it but i can't find a reason why my batch file no longer does what it used to do. According to everything i've read, my batch should stop at IE, until i close IE, whereupon it should continue. This is how it used to behave.
Here it is:
taskkill /im skydrive.exe start "BF3 Borderless" /d "C:\PortableApps\BF3Borderless-1.2" "BF3 Borderless.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" taskkill /im "BF3 Borderless.exe" taskkill /im Origin.exe start "SkyDrive" /d "C:\Users\Recusant\AppData\Local\Microsoft\SkyDrive" "SkyDrive.exe"
I had changed it recently to put SkyDrive in there, but when i retrieved a backup that i KNOW worked, it too just kept going through the batch after IE had run (without me closing it).
I have no idea what has caused my batch to do this.

Have you updated to IE10?
If so, then this line:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
Is launching the 32bit version of IE10*...
...which then launches the 64bit version of IE10*
...then the 32bit version of IE10 exits ram & the batch file continues.
*you never see these windows
IE uses the first instance of iexplore to manage the other instances. This allows for crash recovery and other things. Starting with IE10, that manager instance will be 64bit on a 64bit OS. The tabs or child processes will be 32bit instances of IE by default. You should turn on 64bit tabs. A 32bit instance will be launched if a plugin is needed that only has the 32bit version installed.
Edit: more than you every wanted to know about stuff like this:
