Something like xmetal70.exe /q   

I can't go into the whole toolbar issue we've had for months but I have discovered that if I install XMetal, then the House ALEX, open XMetal, close it, then copy the default.tbr from \Program Files.... to   user\appdata.... the toolbar looks good.  I've tried using taskkill and that closes xmetal but not in a nice way where it creates the structure under \appdata.

Thanks,

Peter

XMetaL is a COM server, so it's possible to run a script that connects to a running instance.

Try putting the following in a file:
Code:
var xm = new ActiveXObject("XMetaL.Application");
xm.Quit();

and use
Code:
cscript file
to run it.
