I have a .ps1 script with arguments (means I run it under powershell: ./script.ps1 -timeframe 100 -filename c:/file -silent).

My question is, how can I create a scheduled task to run this script, or a .bat file to run this script, and to be able to schedule the .bat file...

Or actually any other suggestions how to schedule this script it would be great, I'm just not familiar with PowerShell yet.

Thanks!

For Windows Server 2003 I do the following:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -noprofile -nologo -command "& 'C:\ScriptPath\script.ps1' -timeframe 100 -filename 'c:\file' -silent"

Open in new window

For Server 2008 and above it is much better at detecting parameters. Just enter the path to the PowerShell executable, and in the parameters field put:
-nologo -noprofile -timeframe 100 -filename 'c:\file' -silent

Open in new window
