I often see users asking for batch programming on Windows and they try to solve rather complex tasks. A lot of these tasks would be better solved with a different technique that is also built-in to Windows, but often users simply don't know it exists.
Are there means to attach a kind of "redirect" to a tag ? In this situation the user should be informed that he is better off using the socalled Windows Scripting Host. Or is this a situation where a Wiki could be linked to the tag and one of the first lines could describe the alternatives ? I only recently learned about the "tag-wiki", but I think it might be too hidden.
I have an example for such a post. The OP confirmed he didn't know of the alternative: What's wrong with this Batch file?
