    Running a .bat file in Wine

    I have a very big third party .bat file along with the necessary files in one folder.

    Running this .bat file in Windows is working fine
    Running this .bat file in Wine stopped early due to the fact it's not finding the files used in the same folder.
    As I don't like to change the bat file, i'am looking for a manner to force retrieving the current folder.

    I wrote this .bat to reproduce the problem:

    echo OFF

    if exist *.txt goto :FOUND

    if not exist *.txt goto :NOTFOUND

    dir *.txt
    goto :END

    @echo I did not found any txt files


    When running in Windows, it shows me the txt files.
    When running in Wine it says the txt files are not found.

    Re: Running a .bat file in Wine

    It seems that the if statement cannot identify files via the wild card (*) in the wine version of cmd, and it causes your bat file to fail.

    $ wine cmd
    CMD Version 1.4
    Z:\media\multimed-2\test\test0>if exist *.txt echo yes it exists
    Z:\media\multimed-2\test\test0>if exist hello.txt echo yes it exists
    yes it exists
    Z:\media\multimed-2\test\test0>dir *.txt
    fixme:ntdll:server_ioctl_file Unsupported ioctl 24000 (device=2 access=1 func=0 method=0)
    Volume in drive Z has no label.
    Diskvolymens serienummer är 0000-0000
    Directory of Z:\media\multimed-2\test\test0

    2013-02-10     20:03           516  result1.txt
           5 files                   10,415 bytes
           0 directories     24,164,999,168 bytes free
    If you are prepared to use some other command and rewrite the bat file, it might help to know that dir can identify files via the wild card (*)

    As the batch file is so long, complex and referencing more than 125 times with different wild card combinations to the files to be treated,
    I prefer not to change it.

    It is unfortunate that it does not work in Wine, so I will run the batch in Windows and copy the result into Ubuntu.

    Anyway thanks for the clear response.
