How to create executable launching scripts under Windows 10 ? Reward $1
Created by magali_demorangies, 168 days ago, 635 views

I am a Linux advanced user, and under Mageia Linux I often write little script files to create my own launchers (for particular application's configuration, or to open directly any URI in the special session of an application, etc.) and place them in my menu. I wish to do the same under Windows... But how ?
I tried already to create at least a shortcut with command options using the common "New" > "Shortcut" tool, but Windows refuses to create it if I add any part more than just the basic path of the program (a message-box is pretending that "the URL doesn't exist" when any "- [OPTIONFLAG]" is added). Then I tried making the shortcut basically, and after its creation, asking for the "Properties" of the shortcut file, to add to the "Target" line my command options... But another message-box appears and blocks my attempt of changes on the command (for the same reason, the URL is not recognized if any option is added) !
I know that those special command lines target are existing by the way, as many programs use them, like for example "Google Earth (OpenGL mode)" with its ""C:\thingy\googleearth.exe" -setOGL" target address, and all my Steam games with their "steam://something" URL, etc.
As those files are created by the installation program, I wonder if any application exists that could help me write and create my own command / shortcut / executable files, to be able to place them at least in my desktop folder, and for the best in the menu repertory to make them appear in my menu.
If any person could give me the name of such a program (as long as it's an OpenSource one, or at least free or costing less than 10 Euros, for me to be able to get it !), it would be a great help... Thanks for any answer !

Hi @magali_demorangies

For executable launching scripts, you can create .bat file:-

.bat file are considered to be security treat in windows os. Because, hacker can explore the venerability or .bat files execute harmful code. Hence, it will be blocked by your firewall and antivirus software automatical.

You need to add them to exclution list as per your antivirus and firewall software setting. Their are loot of antivirus softwares in windows, so I can't help without knowing your antivirus software name. Kindly google search for path in user interface of your exclution list.

Thank you for your answer, it's already a great help for me to know now how the Windows scripts are named and to be able to learn their syntax. I know already how to put files on my exclusion list, as I already created a few dll as personal icons storage, and I immediately saw that every AV target them as infected programs ( x'D )... Thanks a lot again.
