Run batch file from Delphi IDE (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/05/29

In pre-Galileo versions of Delphi it was easy to run a .BAT or .CMD file as a main project file: just press F9.

Thanks to iManBiglary for posting how to do this in modern Delphi versions. Paraphrased:

Add the file path to cmd.exe (easieist is to add $(ComSpec) which expands the %ComSpec% environment variable) in the tools menu, with /c$EDNAME as the parameter.
In addition, you can tell the IDE to save your file before running the external tool with the $SAVE macro

One of the things you can do with this is add a project containing a batch file that starts to assemble your build results to create a deployment set.
