I am trying to restart a windows service using a batch file.  This windows service has two dependent services.  When I run the batch file manually it ask if i want to restart the dependents services by entering a (Y)es or (N)o.  When I set this up to run as a scheduled task it never completes because it is waiting for my input.  How to I write the batch file to enter in Y?

One possibility is to create a text file that contains a Y and a CRLF.

then, in the batch file, use redirection like this:

ERASE FOO\*.*  <YES.TXT
