  1. Edit the batch/command file, add a Pause in at the end. Run it. Hopefully the window repairs open on the pause so you can see what the issue is.

    Or you could run the batch/command file from a Command Line to see what the error is or what's happening.

    I would suspect that if it opens/closes quickly, one of the first commands in it is incorrect and it cannot continue.
  2. Its a read only file. If i run in command line also i'm getting the same response. the first command is "cd build".
  3. Copy it and make it writeable :) Ok, first line is "cd build"

    "Change Directory to Build"

    Let's say the file is in the root of C: and the first line says 'cd build' - If C:\build doesn't exist, it'll bomb out. I would expect the next lines after the first play on the fact that the new path is in C:\build. If it isn't the next commands relying on that will fail.
  4. ok.... thanks... i'l try out...
  5. I tried by changing directory. stil it does the same response...
    cd build
    cd compiled
    javafx Design.Node
    exit

    this is the exact lines in that batch file... now my dir is build->compiled->design->node.class...
    It doesn't work :(
