MKVmerge Batch File - Remove Audio Track

I have about 51 video files and I want to remove one of the audio tracks (ID 3), but I don't want to do it one at a time. Instead, I prefer using a script to do the work. Unfortunately, I've been unsuccessful, so I was hoping that someone could help me create a mkvmerge batch script to remove one of the audio tracks (ID 3).

Previously, some people helped me create a batch file to remux some files, and I'm thinking that the second half just needs to be modified:
FOR %%A IN (*.mkv) DO mkvmerge -o "remux-%%~nA.mkv" "%%~A"

For no audio at all, run in a folder with all MKVs to be processed:
Code:
FOR /F "delims=*" %%A IN ('dir /b *.MKV') DO "<path_to_mkvmerge>mkvmerge.exe" -o "fixed_%%A" -A -S --compression -1:none "%%A" -A -D "%%A"

well, that does remove all the audio like you said, but I don't suppose you know of a way to keep one of the audios?

@tosh9i:
I think the following batch will do what you want (modified from 7ekno's script):
Code:
FOR /F "delims=*" %%A IN ('dir /b *.MKV') DO "<path_to_mkvmerge>mkvmerge.exe" -o "fixed_%%A" -a !3 --compression -1:none "%%A"

Unfortunately, when I used that script, a cmd window just opened and closed. However, no changes were made to the mkv file. This is what the screen looked like:

Can you update your mkvtoolnix to latest version and try that batch again (add PAUSE at the end to see what mkvmerge output):

Code:
FOR /F "delims=*" %%A IN ('dir /b *.MKV') DO "<path_to_mkvmerge>mkvmerge.exe" -o "fixed_%%A" -a !3 --compression -1:none "%%A"
PAUSE

A sidenote: if you're running it inside a cmd shell, substitute %%A with %A (I've just found it out by myself)
