Delay a Batch command


Are we there yet?
I am trying to write a batch file that will start a service 1 minute after a computer boots up. I have it set as a scheduled task to run at startup but I need to put a delay in it so that everything else has started before this process starts. Any ideas on how to create a simple 60 second delay?


Are we there yet?
I found a round-about way of creating the delay, but for anyone who wants to know how I did it; I pinged and invalid IP address once with a timeout of 60 seconds, works perfect!

ping -n 1 -w 60000

This way the time delay can be easily be changed.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
