Hi,

I thought some might be interested in my latest batch file to manage ePrompter configurations. I think my old file was the inspiration for the nicely done ePbatch files.

I've only tested under Win98se so the considerations and documentation with ePbatch mostly apply. Although my batch file, ePrompter.bat, works fine as is, hopefully, it will be developed into the well-documented type of utility that ePbatch has become. My file contains some minimal documentation at the end of it.

This one cycles through 26 configurations, allowing the management of 416 email accounts. That should satisfy almost all needs! (I'm about to cross the 48 account mark, myself). It makes no changes to the contents of the ini files as set up by ePrompter. Alternate configurations are maintained in backup files renamed by single alphabet letter extensions from the original ini files.

See the appended "ePrompter.bat" file. I see in the preview for this post that my comment formatting at the end of the file has been damaged. If you have trouble reconstructing something readable, let me know.

Bill H.

[This post edited by Ximinez to remove appended lines of file code, since the actual file has been attached in the following reply.]

The idea has merit. For two or three sets it would be okay.

The only drawback to that is 2MB per folder time 26 letters = using up potentially 60+ MB of disk space. And each time EP has an autoupdate you'd have to check each one to get the latest fixes.

Since when ELEGANCE been cheap?
You are right..ePrompter is a storage HOG:
get rid of the HELP, TEMP, SCREEN saver and the UNINSTALL files...
missed others?

Moreover...
On auto update the darn unnecessary files are put back in each folder, AGAIN!
Thanks a LOT!!!
The 16 account limit STINKS, we came up with a workaround.
Now, I'll have to add a REMOVE routine to the batch file.
