In the user manual, "Image Generator.exe" is generic for the Image Generator that you are using; since we have several types.

For the Aztec Generator, use "Aztec Generator.exe"
For Data Matrix, use "DataMatrix Generator.exe"
For Linear, use "Linear Generator.exe"
For Maxicode, use "MaxiCode Generator.exe"
For PDF417, use "PDF417 Generator.exe"
For QR Code, use "QRCode Generator.exe"

In this example, I will use the QR Code Generator:

For additional information, please visit the Image Generator User Manual.

1. Open the Image Generator, modify the properties, and Save Generator Values.

2. Create your batch file:

You mentioned that you wanted to have
a constant value and variable data to form a barcode.

@ECHO OFF
SET FixedData=1 (your constant value)
SET VariableValue=1 (variable value start)
SET VariableStop=5 (variable value stop)
SET IncrementBy=1 (the amount to increment by)

:Loop
CALL "QRCode Image Generator.exe" LoadValues+Example.xml+%FixedData%%VariableValue%+C:ImageFiles
%FixedData%%VariableValue%.gif
if %VariableValue%==%VariableStop% goto Exit
SET /A VariableValue=VariableValue+%IncrementBy%
goto Loop

:Exit

After the file is run, barcodes will be generated:
11.gif
12.gif
13.gif
14.gif
15.gif
