That didn't work for me either. But I remember having the same trouble with another command a while back so I looked up what I did to it to keep the window open and there was a /k before the word command. So, I tried that and sure enough it kept the window open but it also told me that 'systeminfo is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.' I guess it's just an XP goodie?
