    I have a batch file (ftp) which works just fine when I manually run it. When
    I set it up in Task Scheduler, status says it runs, but the cmd window pops
    open a second, nothing there, and closes. I have it set to run when user is
    logged on, and run with highest privileges. Well, I have tried all sorts of
    combos. When run fron Task Scheduler, it says Queened in the status column.
    I'm out of ideas.

    Yes I do. Both users and admin have passwords. Don't know that it makes a
    difference, but this is Visata Business.

    When you need to edit the schedule run command to "cmd /c
    This allows windows to run the command prompt for executing the batch
    file. Otherwise the batch file will not execute

    I don't suppose I could get you to post your script info (minus your
    personal info obviously)? I am struggling to build an ftp batch file
    that I could load for some lesser capable folks I work with for
    uploading files to my ftp when they are away. There is almost nothing
    posted on how to do this in 2k/xp and vista. Many thanks in advance if
    you would :)
