Rules:

1. Use absolute paths. For example if your batch file is in c:\java\test.bat, call at c:\java\test.bat. And all commands need absolute paths too. So type instead of just java: "C:\jdk13\bin\java.exe". This may not be neccessary but this depends of your configuration of the computer. For example, I discovered that my network drive letter U:\ doesn't exist under at. Why? Because at logs to the computer as another user than you. Perhaps as user "SYSTEM" but I don't know.

2. pause after each command in the batch file helps a lot.

3. use at /interactive

This way I got everything working!

Good luck!

With the AT command. Open the command window and enter the following:

C:\> at java <yourJavaProgram>

first check whether it really works if started immediately.

C:\> java <yourJavaProgram>

Type at to show all pending tasks and with at /delete you can delete tasks. at /? shows you all possibilities.

Nope, its not working when I type
c:\>at java <JAVA_PRG>  
         its throwing invalid command. Even I tried using
c:\>at 20:35 "java <JAVA_PRG>"
          or
c:\>at 20:35 "java.bat"
                where I included 'java' command in batch file but doest seem to be working and when I type 'at' to see jobs,

c:\>at
Status ID   Day                     Time          Command Line

Anil
