Shutdown Windows after Backup

I would like to shut down Windwos after backup the mails. EM Client does not offer this possibility.

I can see the parameters for the backup via the Windows task scheduler.

I would like to create a batch file to create the backup and shutdown Windows afterwards.
Unfortunately the path + parameters does not work in a batch file.

Can someone tell me the correct command for the batch file that I can use to start the backup?

Sorry for my english.

Try this in the batch file:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\eM Client\MailClient.exe" /dbbackup -backup

or this if eM Client is closed and you don’t want to see the progress bar:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\eM Client\MailClient.exe" /dbbackup -backup -silence

Thank you very much. This works great.

Now I only have the problem that the following command “shutdown -s -f” is executed immediately.

How can I wait until the backup is complete before he shuts down Windows

This may help:

If it doesn’t apply/solve exactly, at least you’ll have some info to proceed with investigating or testing.

StackExchange is also a good site in which to go digging/searching.
