I have a user that is trying to launch a mechanica analysis batch file using a scheduled task and it isn't working. Double clicking on the .bat file works (command prompt window pops up, the software starts and the analysis starts running). However, when we attempt to run that same .bat file using a Windows scheduled task, the command prompt window just pops up and disappears - the analysis never runs. Is there something that needs to be added to the batch file or a setting in the scheduled task that needs to be added / specified?
