I need a bat file to run over 30 seconds.  With scheduler I can only schedule every 60 secons and soon.exe won't work for me for less than 70 seconds.

Anyone have any thoughts?

every 30 seconds?

Schedule two jobs running the same task - offset them by 30 seconds...
Will that work for you?

You can download the sleep function, or you can fudge it using

ping 127.0.0.1 -n 30

which is nearly equivalent to a 30 second delay.

redirect it to null to hide the output

ping 127.0.0.1 -n 30 > nul
