This is about scheduling download on remote vista machine via telnet.

I wanted to give link , file name & time as input to script which will start background process executing batch file ( created by script ) on schedule.

After an hour I came out with
Code:
Tree
<dir> bat
<dir> log
<dir> done
template.bat
chp.exe
wget.exe
touch.exe


template.bat CODE
:while
set /p name=file name (write end to exit) :-
if %name%==end goto stop
echo cd <folder-containing-batch-files> > bat\%name%.bat
echo <drive-letter>:  >> bat\%name%.bat
set /p link=URL:-
echo wget %link%  -a logs\%name%.log >> bat\%name%.bat
echo touch done\%name%.done    >> bat\%name%.bat
time /t @this is current time
set /p tod=time to schedule job :-
at %tod% <full path of chp.exe> cmd /c <full path of %name%.bat>
goto while
:stop
You can keep feeding links .

I got
touch (http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/)
wget (http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm)
chp (http://www.commandline.co.uk/chp/)
for vista from unixutils

These applications are crafty. Thanks to developers.

You can use
Code:
(1)'tail' (from unixutils) of logfile to know ETA 
(2)'if exist <file-1.done> if exist <file-2.done> ... so on ... shutdown /s' to automatically turn off computer after all files have been downloaded.

    Cannot create a file when that file already exists.
    file name (write end to exit) :-end
    I don't understand why fn4.bat did not ran .
    can you spot error in template.bat ?
