Hello,

I have been having some trouble with our script and am trying to debug it. However, when I execute the debug command the first error returned is rem @echo off is not a recognized command (unknown command!). The script is started from a batch file and this is the first line within that batch file. Is this batch file incorrectly written? Any help is appreciated.

no.
the problem is that you actually are trying to debug the batch and as you obviously know, that is not supported in kix.

Sounds like your debugging your batch file and not the Kix script.

Can you post your batch file?

Ways to approach Debugging (From the Manual):

;(1) In code
DEBUG ON
;code...
DEBUG OFF

(2) From the command line or batch file:
KIX32 YOURSCRIPT.kix /d

HTH,

O.K. I see what I was doing wrong. Now, I have started again and when the script gets to hide console the command prompt disappears. How can I finish seeing the script execute?

One of two ways..
(1) Add a Get $x at then end of your script.
(2) Run it from a command line and not a batch file..

Look for an EXIT/QUIT and comment out these lines.

I am currently trying to debug the script from the command line. I have added the Get $x as suggested and I really didn't see any change. The only way I can debug the entire script is to suppress or comma out the hide console command in the script.

Well not hiding the console so that you can see it execute is a big step forward.
