Iam using ActiveState, and I actually tried the wperl suggestion (someone told me earlier in the CB) and it doesn't seem to work. I get a "Could not start" message when I schedule the following task: wperl C:\bootscript\ Thanks for reminding me to run this as a different user, I've done that now.

    Perhaps a silly question, but is wperl.exe on the path and accessable to the user?

      Not silly at all, but no, that is not the problem, I've tried it with the full path and tested it on the command line.
