    Example:
    Start.Bat Contains:
    "D:
    CD\MyWorkingFiles
    MyProgram.exe"


    Instead of using D: in the Start.Bat, can we use something like
    SetGlobalVariable => D:\GlobalVariable.ini (Inside this file is simple "E:")

    Example2:
    Start.Bat Contains:
    "SetGlobalVariable => D:\GlobalVariable.ini
    %GlobalVariable%
    CD\MyWorkingFIles
    MyProgram.exe"



    This way, let's say I had 100 .BAT Files, instead of changing all .BAT files from D: to E:, I would just have to change D:\GlobalVariable.ini from D: to E:

    Is this possible?

    Yes, create an environment variable. For instance, when you use %systemdrive% it is referring to the c: (usually). This is an environment variable that can be called in any batch script. Just create what you need.
