If under 'dos' you mean command line, then this help section will be useful for you: Command Line

Do you want :

[a]. Strategy Tester to run on the background or [b]. when current testing finished, to start another testing with same EA with different setting, or [c]. when current testing finished, start another testing with different EA ?

Hi phi.nuts,

 I want b and c. I need to keep my machine busy when it is done. SO when a particular EA H1 is done I want to maybe sart same (or diffrent) EA on M30. I want some automation in the tester... period

 Sorry for being unclear.

For b] use either "start" and "step" field on Strategy Tester input (click here) or use OnTester(), for c]. definitely you have to write external application for it :(

The command line parameters allow starting the terminal with a custom configuration file (ex. terminal.exe /config:c:\myconfiguration.ini). And there is a part in the configuration file which allows setting test/optimization parameters for the strategy tester - [Tester].

Also there are functions in MQL5 that allow working with optimization results "on-the-fly", they might be also useful for you.
