I believe you can use other programs, like Batik, but i don't have 
experience with it, so i still recommend to use Inkscape (which i used 
extensively to mass convert from SVG to PNG on Linux).
The trick is to modify the batch file to suit your needs (Windows XP). 
You can use "start /wait inkscape.exe" to make it to not start a new 
instance until the current operation is finished.

See some examples:


Unfortunately, i can't give you an exact version of the .bat file as i 
have abbandoned using Windows for any serious task a few years ago and 
don't have experience with it, just old memories.
