JSI Tip 6220. How can I 'schedule' a process to start as soon as it stops?

If you need to cause a process to start as soon at it stops, use the %0 batch parameter.

The %0 parameter contains the name of the invoked process, regardless of how it was invoked; i.e., by the scheduler, a batch, a shortcut, a program, or the Run command.

 Here is an example of Continuous.bat:

@echo off
set this=%0
