This FAQ attempts to clear up confusion around terminating a batch file running within a DOS terminal on a Windows machine. This pertains to GenRocket because, when you run a GenRocket command, you are technically running a batch process which you have the ability to terminate before it's completion, should you choose to do so.

Once a command is launched from the GenRocket batch command, the user may terminate the command by pressing Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Break.  Once the termination is initiated, the DOS command interpreter presents the user with the option to terminate the batch with either a Y or N option.  The actions of either or these options are the following:

  • N - the cmd interpreter will skip the current command and proceed to the next command in the batch file. 

  • Y - the cmd interpreter will  abort execution of the batch file and return to DOS prompt.
