Reteriving current directory in batch file.

Today I ran into a strange scenario, there was a need to create a batch file which will create a service.

Now the problem is service installation path was unknown to me and for any service to install it needs to its executable’s absolute path.

After doing some hit & trial and googling, came across the solution:

ECHO “Creating some service”


sc create someService binPath= %CURRENT_DIR%”\someService.exe” start= demand obj=  password=

Hope  this helps!!
