    I want to start CLS2Sim for my CLS-E NG FORCE FEEDBACK YOKE from a Windows batch file, through which I also start other programs that are necessary for the simulation. Unfortunately this doesn’t work as expected.

    I created a file named “startsim.bat” which calls CLS2Sim.exe:

    C:\Users\msfs\FlightSim>type startsim.bat
    start /b “C:\Program Files (x86)\Brunner Elektronik AG\CLS2Sim\CLS2Sim.exe”
    echo OK

    When I call this file it merely starts a new command processor, but not CLS2Sim:


    C:\Users\msfs\FlightSim>start /b “C:\Program Files (x86)\Brunner Elektronik AG\CLS2Sim\CLS2Sim.exe”

    C:\Users\msfs\FlightSim>echo OK

    C:\Users\msfs\FlightSim>Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19045.3208]
    (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.


    If, on the other hand, I enter “C:\Program Files (x86)\Brunner Elektronik AG\CLS2Sim\CLS2Sim.exe” directly in the command line, CLS2Sim starts correctly.

    How can I start CLS2Sim from a Windows batch file?



    Replying to myself: I found a solution here:
    Apparently using

    start “” “C:\Program Files (x86)\Brunner Elektronik AG\CLS2Sim\CLS2Sim.exe”

    does the trick. Don’t know why the empty “” makes such a difference, but at least I can continue now.
