    Hi, I'm trying to get winXP task scheduler to open a cmd window and run a batch job (bat file) each day at a certain time. I can get it to open the cmd window but it wont run my batch file. Does someone know how to do this?

    cheers

    What is your command line in TS?

    It should look like this example:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /k "C:\Program Files\rmempty12_DeleteEmptyFolders\RMEMPTY.bat"
