How to let Matlab execute bat file at the bat file directory.

41 views (last 30 days)
I have two bat files I want to run simultaneously through a matlab script,which also generate some output files.
I use command line as below:
dos('C:\sim\folder1\run.bat &')
dos('C:\sim\folder2\run.bat &')
However, when I run the matlab script using the code above, both the bat files are run in 'C:\sim' because my matlab script is saved in 'C:\sim'. How do I execute the bat files in different directory with my matlab script?

I have found a solution. Create a function with
dos('C:\sim\folder1\run.bat &')
as code in at same folder with the bat file ans use command run in the main matlab script.
