After converting my machine from Win 98 to 2000 Professional, I experience a pause after each call statement in my batch files. So in the following example:

EM *** NEW MEXICO

CD NM
CALL %1 NM_PDS_WELL S:\HPDI\WY
CALL %1 NM_PDS_WELLALLOC S:\HPDI\WY
CALL %1 NM_PDS_PROD S:\HPDI\WY
CALL %1 NM_PDS_ANNPROD S:\HPDI\WY
CALL %1 NM_PDS_LEASE S:\HPDI\WY

CD..

It will load all records from NM_PDS_WELL, then I get just a blinking cursor on the next line. I have to ctrl-break, then hit N so it doesn't terminate the batch job. It does the same thing after each call statement.

I never had this problem when I used Windows 98, only with 2000. Is there any suggestions on how to fix this bug?
