Win2K (including XP & variants) has a much more powerful command line language, of which the older Win98 (& earlier) batch is a subset. These are normally used in a .cmd file, although .bat also works.
I am not familiar with Opera, but assume that you are invoking Vedit to edit web page content.
Christian's suggestion would work.
A much better approach is to create a shortcut to Vpw.exe and call this from Opera. (I am assuming that you are using Win2K/XP.)
The shortcut can include all the command line options (without batch limitations), doesn't start another shell (although Opera may already do this) and lets you set Windowed/Minimised/Maximised and Startup Directory etc.
You might also want to look at Vedit's instance control.
I have Vedit running all the time, and usually prefer to open files in this instance. You may prefer to open a new instance of Vedit, which I do occasionally.
