Thanks JimB. I was reading the QRG. So is there anyway of queuing job in Windows? does one need a 1/3 party tool?

Just create a .bat file of the command lines to launch each job, i.e.:

 

set NXN_EXE="D:\NXN11\bin\nastran.exe"

set NXN_MEM=6GB
set NXN_SMP=2

set NXN_ARGS=mem=%NXN_MEM% smp=%NXN_SMP%

%NXN_EXE% run1.dat %NXN_ARGS%
%NXN_EXE% run2.dat %NXN_ARGS%
%NXN_EXE% run3.dat %NXN_ARGS%
%NXN_EXE% run4.dat %NXN_ARGS%

 

The native behavior of the Windows batch file execution is to wait for each line to complete before processing the next line, so the 4 jobs shown above would be run sequentially, not concurrently.
