Is this a safe script for installing several desktop theme packs at..?

Is this a safe script for installing several desktop theme packs at once? I have a 64 bit CPU. the name of the file is _Install ThemePacks.cmd

@echo off
for %%z in (*.themepack) do (
%SystemRoot%\system32\rundll32.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL %SystemRoot%

\system32\desk.cpl desk,@Themes /Action:OpenTheme /file:"%%z"

rem Should delay about 9 seconds to give the theme time to extract and install before moving on.
ping 1.0.0.0 -w 1000 -n 9 > nul

)
echo Done! Press any key to exit script . . .
pause>

Couldn't you just place all .themepack files into a folder, select them and press Enter?

Yes the script is safe, but it's unnecessary.

You would think that method you mentioned would work but it doesn't. I tried that method before I posted.

Thank you for your help.
