Just about everything you'll ever need on DOS can be found with an internet/google search on DOS.

Does it not run when you attempt to run the batch file or is there an error displayed?

Suppose that you have you customized version in "c:\ubcd"

Go to start ==> Run... ==> type "cmd" (without quotes).
Change the directory to "C:\ubcd\tools\ubcd2iso\"
Type the following in the console window.
Quote:
UBCD2ISO c:\ubcd c:\ubcd40.iso

(UBCD extracted in dir 'c:\ubcd', ISO image written to 'c:\ubcd40.iso')
or run it with no parameters to get help (ubcd2iso).

If you want to run the command several times, you can create another batch script. (Open notepad, paste the text from the box below, go to File ==>Save As..., give it a name with .bat at the end, set the Filetype to "All files" and save it). Now you can make you iso just by double clicking on the file.
Quote:
C:\ubcd\tools\ubcd2iso\UBCD2ISO c:\ubcd c:\ubcd40.iso

OK, the batch file is running then, but it appears your paths in the last line of the file are wrong or you have a limited user account. Did you extract the ISO to c:\ubcd or somewhere else?

What version of Windows are you running?

You have the last line in the batch file wrong,

Or...

You don't have the permissions to write to your C drive (limited Vista or XP user).

What is the full path to the batch file? For example C:\ubcd\etc or C:\Users\Grayfox\Desktop\ubcd?

What does the last line in the batch file read?

mkisofs.exe is an executable file that cannot be edited by normal means, but you don't have to edit it for making the ISO.

Edit ubcd2iso.bat, and change the last line to read:

ubcd2iso c:\users\karl\UBCD410 c:\users\karl\Desktop\UBCD410_custom.iso

The default last line points to folders that don't exist on your system.

If you look at the batch file there is a part that gives you the "error" from before. So probably you don't even have to change mkisofs to Windows XP compatibility mode. It also says what you have to do. You have to run the ubcd2iso.bat with 2 parameters, the name of the direcory which contains the unpacked iso (=c:\users\karl\UBCD410\) and
the name of the file for you iso (e.g.: c:\users\karl\UBCD410-custom.iso)
See also my first post, If you want to automate this.

This is the help text from the ubcd2iso.bat when you run it without any commands.
Code:
UBCD2ISO: Create bootable UBCD ISO image

Params:   -Y : No pause (for batch-mode)

Usage:    UBCD2ISO (UBCD-path) (output-image) [params]

Example:  UBCD2ISO c:\ubcd c:\ubcd40.iso
           (UBCD extracted in dir 'c:\ubcd', ISO image written to 'c:\ubcd40.iso')

Required: W2K/XP/W2K3 and UBCD extracted to local storage
