Check for presence of batch file with IF EXIST

You can check whether certain files are present using an 'IF EXIST' command. You can use this to execute commands via a batch file.

Configure batch file:

  • When performing one task, the syntax is:

    IF EXIST batchfile.bat command

  • When performing several commands. You can insert a jump to clarify:

    IF NOT EXIST batchfile.bat GOTO DOESNOTEXIST

    'enter your command lines here'

    :DOESNOTEXIST

    'continue here'

  • If you want to perform one action if the file exists and another action if the file does not exist, you can do this as follows:

    IF EXIST batchfile.bat GOTO EXISTS

    'enter the lines used if the file does not exist here'

    GOTO FURTHER EXISTS

    'enter the lines used if the file exists here'

    FURTHER

  • If any spaces are present in the path name, you must place the entire path+filename+extension between straight double quotes.

    IF EXIST "C:\Program FIles (x86)\batchfile.bat" GOTO BESTAAT
