    thanks guys. i'll post a screen shot for who needs an answer in the future happen to be same issue as I am facing. but if not for your "echo > a.bat" command I would never have gotten one that works, hence never find the right encoding in notepad++ as i didn't have a pair of working/nonworking ones to compare with.

    solved, look at screenshot below. use notepad++ to change encoding and it'll work. or use the "echo" function below to create a clean .bat file.
