start /wait does not wait for process to finish
I am having a batch file which installs mysql and other addon's. I start the installation with start /wait command for MYSQL.exe as given below.
start /wait $INSTALL_PATH/Temp1/Server/MYSQL.exe
The problem is that the processing does not wait for the MYSQL.exe to complete. So in the above code the line "echo done" gets executed before the line "start /wait $INSTALL_PATH/Temp1/Server/MYSQL.exe" has finished installation of MYSQL.
