Running a Filemaker script from Windows Task Scheduler

I have FileMaker Server 12 Advanced with clients around the state. I need to run a script nightly that combines the data from all the files. The script works when I run it as a client, but because OPEN and CLOSE aren't functions that work on a server I can't get it to run successfully with the FileMaker server scheduler. I read a post that recommended to run it from Windows Task Scheduler but I don't know how to create something that will log into the database that contains the script so it can execute the build script. It needs to run unattended overnight, any suggestions for me?

 

Thanks
