I have an application (Oracle 9i, Oracle Forms, J2EE) that requires to BAT files to be running in order for it all to work. I want these files to run as a service when the computer is turned on. However, if I try to set them up as Scheduled Tasks, I have to enter my network username and password. This would be OK, if the username and password didn't change every 60 days. I don't want there to be a situation where that information expires, or we forget to update it. Obviously the application won't run if that information is not up to date. So, is there a way I can run these as services? TIA. ---------- Randal Rust Covansys Corporation Columbus, OH Confidentiality Statement: This message is intended only for the individual or entity to which it is addressed.
