Task Manager running a Batch file

I have written a batch file to run every afternoon, using Task Manager. When I was running WIndows XP, the Task Manager (or it may have been the batch file itself) opened a new DOS window whilst it was running so that I could see everything was working correctly. Under Windows 7, the same batch file will only run in a new window if I run it myself - if it runs in Task Manager it will only run in the background. How can I get it to oipen a DOS window whilst running through Task Manager, please?

Could you run it under Task Scheduler in Administrative tools? Just a thought.

Yes - that's what I do. But it runs in the background and I can't see it running.
