Under Inno Setup 4.0.9 and later, you may run a batch file by specifying the filename directly in the Filename parameter of a [Run] section entry:

Filename: "{app}\YourBatchFile.bat"

Note: If you find that on Windows 95/98/Me the console window remains on the screen after the batch file has finished executing, add a "CLS" command to the end of it.

In previous versions of Inno Setup, the recommended way to run a batch file is as follows:

Filename: "{cmd}"; Parameters: "/C ""{app}\YourBatchFile.bat"""
