Running analysis as a scheduled task

Running analysis as a scheduled task

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?

Thanks,

Just check once for the "start in directory" in scheduler.
Is it the same directory (where .bat file is kept)?
If no, then change it to the same directory.

Thanks
