I have been programing a batch file for a folder i wuold like to protect. But The batch script will not work no matter how hard i try. I'm not too familiar with the set command and believe this is where i am going wrong. I would appreiciate help with this. And if anyone has recommended sources i would find this hand. Here is what i have so far. I have replaced the file route and passord this is not the programming error:
@echo off

title Open File
Echo Please enter password
set/p "pass=>"
if %pass%=="my password" goto passed
if NOT %pass%=="my password" goto FAIL

start c:\WINDOWS\"foldername"
goto :end

Echo Incorrect Login
goto :end


Thanks in adveanced.

SET with the prompt option works like this:
C:> SET /P myvar="Enter password: "
Enter password: abcdef
C:> SET myvar
To get help for SET, use HELP SET.
(Or "HELP SET > set.txt" and read it in notepad.)
HELP by itself lists all commands.
Google "windows batch files" for tutorials.
