trying to run from a service a .bat file as administrator so it shows on desktop
Posted on 2004-09-06
Hi. I have a .bat file that works fine if I click it, but when I try to run it from a program I found (QueIt) which is installed on another lan machine as a service, the .bat runs but it is invisible. It does show up in task manager under processes. How can I make this run and appear on the desktop? I need to shut down access, then copy a file from our server, then restart access so when the pc user gets to the office in the morning, it is open and waiting for them. Thanks.
we have w2k
here is the .bat:
Kill.exe -f msaccess.exe
copy \\OURSERVER\ourserversfolder\ouraccessdb.mdb c:\thismachinesfolder\ouraccessdb.mdb
start msaccess.exe C:\thismachinesfolder\ouraccessdb.mdb
