Is it possible to call .bat files from a module?

Hello, I have a module that use a .exe application to generate some csv.

To call it I use subprocess, like this:

from subprocess import * 

def test(self, cr, uid, ids, context={}):

subproc = Popen([C:\gen.exe], stdout=PIPE, stderr=PIPE)
(out, err) = subproc.communicate()

return True

And it's working.

Now I'm trying to do the same thing with .bat files, but I can't make it work.

This code works in python:

import subprocess 

but once loaded in a module function, the bat file it's not executed.

Is there a way to execute batchs from odoo?

Any help is appreciated


The problem was the command "@echo off" in bat file at the start of the program.

Removing it, odoo can execute the file.
