Scheduling an Application Reference file to Run

I scheduled a program "emailapp.application" to run in Scheduled Tasks in Windows Server 2003, and it opens it up in notepad instead of running the program.  I tried putting "emailapp.application" in a batch file and scheduled the batch file to run but get the message "Application cannot be started.  Contact the Application Vendor".  When I double click the batch file I get the prompt "Publisher could not be verified.  Are you sure you want to run this software?"  Then if I click "run" it runs.  If I double click "emailapp.application" then the program runs without any prompt.  How can I schedule the program to run without any prompts?

Thanks for the link.  I ended up getting it to work from scheduling a batch file to run the program.
