I have a bat file that I would like to execute at 11pm every night. Is there any way to have the .bat file to execute at a specific time without using the windows task scheduler?
How can I ensure that the .bat file executes even if now one is logged into the computer.

Why don't you want to use the Windows Task Scheduler, it can run jobs even when no user is logged on to the system.

I concur completely. There are third party tools out there but Scheduler is free.

I wanted to use MRTG script with Task Scheduler. Minimal interval of 1 minute (Win2k) forced me to look for some kind of Cron for Windows.
i.e. http://cronw.sourceforge.net/
