Sorry If I didn't understand it properly but what do you mean by "I can't see the windows of it" ? Thanks – Mahesh Velaga Jan 9 '10 at 8:13

You have to run them interactively (from a command prompt) to see them in a window. Otherwise the process(es) run in the background and thus do not have a window associated with them.

Your task needs to run in interactive mode. You can run at.exe /interactive or schedule with schtasks.exe as described here.
