I don't think you'd need to go through the trouble of creating .vbs files.
I never thought about your approach to this before, but considering P.O's
utilities are just commandline utilities (that unfortunately have to be run
from the PO server), SQL could possibly append to a .bat file (on the PO
machine), then schedule that batch file to run at some point during the
day/night (via "at"/"winat"); then another to remove the batch file or zero
it out somehow.
Now that you've provoked that thought, I think I'll tinker around with the
idea and see if I come up with anything. Obviously if I do, I'll post my
results, etc. here.
