Is it just me, or does RatBatch seem to fail a lot?

If I just run RatDVD, it compresses just fine. RatCheck gives it a clean bill of health. But if I use RatBatch, it fails, usually within seconds, with a "RatDVD has stopped responding" message. But if I turn around and just use RatDVD by itself, with the same PC and same other programs running, it works fine. SO what's up with that?

The tools available within the package are very old (2005). The problems you encounter are probably related to compatibility. Try running the applications with a compatibility tweak applied. Right click the RATattack, then select Properties > Compatibility. I recommend using Windows XP Service Pack 3 from the list. You can do the same for RATBatch as well. If you still have issues, access the official website and download the latest available patch.

This absolutely fixed it. I probably should have thought of that myself, seeing as it's old, but I didn't and you did so YOU ROCK!
