Running a .bat file from a container field on Windows

Any ideas or help on this would be appreciated!

 

I would like to store a .bat file in a container field and run it is a send event. I want to hide the code I wrote in the .bat file from the end user.

 

My script step is simply to execute a "send event" from the container field. When I place it in the container field and leave the original file on the disk it works fine. But when I remove the original file, the script no longer runs. If I use the external storage option it does not run.

 

Has anyone else tried and succeeded in having a .bat file run from a container field, without allowing that bat file to be looked at by the user?

 

Thanks!

 

Tom
