I need to create a service that will call a batch file. Here's the catch though - once the service calls the batch file, the command window that the batch file runs in must be visible on the desktop, it cannot run hidden. So far nothing I've tried results in the command window being visible. Any suggestions?

Does it really need to be a windows service?
Could it just be a windowless app that has an internal timer that fires and spawns the batch file?
You could launch it from the startup folder or from the registry.
