    Darn Scheduler!

    Ok, I have this service and I need to run a script once a day early in the morning. I want to make a new item in the scheduler to run the script thats hosted on a web server. So I made a shortcut to the script address. However when the scheduler runs the shortcut it opens in dreamweaver. Yet when I double click the shortcut, the script runs just fine. Any ideas?
