I have found that to automatically copy a bunch of files to a client,
make registry changes and so on, the easiest way is to make an install
package using Innosetup ( http://www.jrsoftware.org/ ). Its a free,
open source setup package maker. It packs all your files into a tight
little exe witch can be run interactively or without user interaction.
Of course, it may not suit your purposes, but thats a much neater
solution than a bat file.
