Haven't use batch files in many years so please correct my logic:
Goal: execute via batch file (*.bat) in vista 4 project files (*.ahl)
1. Saved one project file as master.ahl
2. Copied the text between <project> and </project> of the 3 remaining
project files and pasted them one after another - not including the
<project> and </project> tags
3. created batch file that is a one liner to execute the master.ahl
with the following line:
C:\Program Files\ZZEE\AHL3\zahl3.exe master.ahl

didn't work ... any ideas?

You *should* include the <project> and </project> tags. So your .ahl file
must look like:

<project>
... project 1 contents ...
</project>
<project>
... project 2 contents ...
</project>
<project>
... project 3 contents ...
</project>

Also please put your .ahl file to the folder where AHL is intalled, i.e.
to "C:\Program Files\ZZEE\AHL3".
