No Executable File Execution Precedence

Q101775



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1





SUMMARY

There is no rule as to which executable file will be started first when file names differ only by extension (.COM, .EXE, .BAT, or .CMD). The order in which program launchers search for executable files is specific to the program launcher. The Windows NT API, CreateProcess, looks for a file name with an .EXE extension if none was specified in the call.
