I am auto creating scheduled tasks with this line within a batch windows script:
schtasks /Create /RU SYSTEM /RP SYSTEM /TN startup-task-%%i /TR %SPEEDWAY_DIR%\%TARGET_DIR%%%i\%STARTUPFILE% /SC HOURLY /MO 1 /ST 17:%%i1:00
I wanted to avoid using specific user credentials and thus decided to use SYSTEM.
Now, when checking in the taskmanagers process list or, even better, directly with the
command itself, all is working well, the tasks are running as intended.
However in this particular case I would like to have an open console window where I can see the log flying by.
I know I could use
C:\> tail -f thelogfile.log
if I installed e.g. cygwin (on all machines) or some proprietary tools like Baretail on Windows. But since I only switch to these machines in case of trouble, I would prefer to start the scheduled task in such a way that every user immediately sees the log.
