=== ODM Question ===

While doing the silent installation when you execute the following command

setup.exe -silent -responseFile D:\enterprise.rsp -waitForCompletion

In the command line window the installer opens a second command window which does the actual installation. The first command window, where you executed the setup command, either closes or returns the operating system prompt. This leads the operating system to think that the setup command has completed, and it then triggers the next line in the setup.bat script. As a result, the installer attempts to complete post-installation steps while the Oracle software is still being installed in a separate command window.

How do you run the setup.bat script so that after executing the command in the first window, the script opens a second command window but does NOT close the first window or return the operating system prompt in the first window until the installation is completed in the second window?
