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?

Can you share the BAT file you have so far?

If you are using the NET START command then try each of these to see if one works:

NET START service-name /Y

echo Y|NET START service-name

Another approach could be to expand your script to manually STOP and START the dependent services manually rather than automatically.
