When running a SmartConnect map via a Windows scheduled task, a command (DOS) window keeps opening and closing every time the map runs.
To eliminate the CMD window from opening and closing, the map needs to be scheduled to run as user that is not logged on to the machine. Typically an Active Directory user is created to run the eConnect COM+ object. Use that same user when you are scheduling the maps on the machine in a scheduled task. As long as you are not logged into windows as that user, the CMD box will not open up.
