Here is the test document that I use to test my .bib files;
the output .pdf contains live urls

- - - sas-press.bat - - -
set filename=sas-press
call del      %filename%.aux
call del      %filename%.bbl
call del      %filename%.blg
call pdfLaTeX %filename%
call pdfLaTeX %filename%
call   bibTeX %filename%
call pdfLaTeX %filename%
call pdfLaTeX %filename%

note: this .tex must be same name as .bib
see sas-press.bib in an earlier e-mail
