I am trying to do the following:
1. Open an application (on the Windows Desktop).
2. Have that app load a file from another directory.
3. Send 2 keystrokes to the app.
4. Schedule this to run nightly.

Thanks!

In a Task Sequence task, try following steps:
1) to open the application use either the Open Documents task, or WinCommand task.
2) delay step to load application - 30-60 seconds
3) You can send keystrokes using the Send Keystrokes task.

not sure how you would load the file into the application.. maybe another set of keystrokes?

I am very new to this type of application, so I would appreciate it if you would guide me through the steps involved.

I know I choose New Task\Run Program\Windows Command, then find the App shortcut and choose that. After that, I need to know the next steps...

Thanks
