I am needing to flash an image on a computer desktop to alert someone when new email arrives. The standard Outlook notifications are not good enough and we cannot use audio. So I thought I would just use a batch file that causes an image to flash on the desktop for a predetermined amount of time (say 30 seconds). I can create a rule in outlook to lauch the batch file when new email arrives. (not a problem) I just do not know how to write a batch that can flash an image and have it continue to flash that image for the set amount of time. Also, it would be good to have it also include a prompt that would allow for the user to kill the batch file if they are already near the computer. I guess I could use any image type for this batch file.
