Run Scheduled Windows VBScript tasks silently

Here’s a quick one.

If you need to run scheduled VBScript tasks on a Windows server, and you don’t want an annoying Command Prompt window popping up every time the task runs, select the task from Start / Control Panel / Scheduled Tasks

In the run setting, make sure that you are specifying the Windows Script Host wscript.exe before the name of your script e.g. wscript.exe “C:scriptname.vbs”

That’s all there is to it.
