Hello,

I have a scheduled task which runs c:\auto\myjob.cmd every 2 minutes.  I want to run that window minimized instead of looking at the dos screen everytime it runs.  I have already tried adding start /min "c:\auto\myjob.cmd" in the run property for the job, and all I get is "could not start".  The system is running windows2003 server.  Thanks.
