How to Pass User inputs to a Batch File?


I want to run a series of batch files simultaneously. Each batchfile has a verification prompt asking for “Yes” or “No” before it starts execution. I am getting this prompt on a CMD window but I am unable to pass keys to the prompt automatically.

My workflow looks like:

  1. Start Process
    [ D:\info.bat]
    [Arguments is blank]
  2. Send Hotkey ‘cmd.exe My System Info’
    [Indicated the CMD window on screen]
    key - y

Activate - True
ClickBeforeTyping - True
KeyModifiers - None
SpecialKey - True


The batch files runs but doesn’t take any input from the keyboard.

Can someone please help me with this?
