Hi friend,

i guess the spaces between the batch and the variables are the problem.

Try to set the whole string into quotas.

e.g. "d:/PROGRA~1/.... $D $M"

Or create another batchfile from where you execute the mentioned command and parameters.

Hope that helps a bit.

Best regards,

This won't work. $D and $M are obsolete. You should just enter your script name in the dialog. Within the script, you can get the hostname by dereferencing %~1 and the syslog message by dereferencing %~2.
