Both techniques work. The call method is a bit easier because using vim.exe requires using the entire path to vim.exe.
Thank you both for the assist!

You're probably right. If I recall correctly, directly calling one .bat file from another will terminate the caller when the callee terminates. But you can use the "call" command, like "call vim.bat" to prevent this. Or use the .exe file directly as suggested.
