millisleep.exe - sleep your batch files for X milliseconds


This is a small console program that simply calls "sleep" for a specified number of milliseconds. Useful if you need to do any waiting in your windows batch files but don't feel like using the "official" sleep in the optional Windows Server 2003 resource kit.

Update: Apr 3 2014. Took the printed line out.


  • Win32 Console. Probably only useful for batch file writers.
