Quick Books extraction & insertion scripts

We have a system running that has worked for over five years.

Overnight, several scripts are run on a schedule; one extracts data from quick books & initiates a web server process. Another downloads files from the web server & insters data into Quick Books. Theses are run on a Windows server.

All the people who build this process are long gone & unavailable.

I have been asked to determine if a change to Quick Books 2013 will effect the way these scripts operate. The current Quick Books version is 2011.

If I could find the scripts I could post them here.

So the first question is where would it be likely the scripts are? Or do I need to look at the Windows scheduling mechanism & figure out what is run at 3:00 AM, etc.

How do I do that? In XP? In Win 7?

Thanks

The scripts could be anywhere.  In order to track them down you will need to look at the Windows scheduled process that kicks them off and see where it is running them from.

It is most likely a .bat or a .cmd file.  Once you know where this is, you can delve into them and see what exactly is being run and from where.
