I have a script which runs this:
"C:\Program Files\mysql\bin\mysql" -uroot -prootpasswd < C:\ClearBinaryLogs.sql

ClearBinaryLogs.sql:
use db
PURGE MASTER LOGS BEFORE 'NOW()';

doesn't clear anything but seems to complete without any errors and all the paths are correct, anyone have any ideas?

No need to use "use db" and in fact you can write into single line as

"C:\Program Files\mysql\bin\mysql" -uroot -prootpasswd -e "PURGE MASTER LOGS BEFORE NOW( );"


Better ad a single line to your my.ini/my.cnf which does automatically and no need to schedule a batch job..
