Hi, it's been quite a while since I posted on GameDev! :) I am trying to set up a scheduled task in Windows, that opens the command line and carries out a few simple commands. The first thing I want it to do is go to a specific directory, then I want it to run a program in that directory which itself has command line parameters - it needs to be in the dir. as other programs depend on that. In the schedule task, I have set it up to run the cmd.exe program at a given time, but how do I pass in the commands I want it to run? I have tried the following, all to no avail.
cmd --cd:\Projects\Dir --program.exe
cmd cd:\Projects\Dir program.exe --commandOptions
Does anyone have a solution to this? Thanks in advance Spree

I have not tried it but you might want to try using 'start' instead of cmd?
