comment Task Scheduler - Batch script to run on condition that another task has completed
There is another program called getpids.exe scheibli.com/projects/getpids . It will return the current PID, parent pids (one of which is your cmd.exe). Youu would call it from your batch program and parse for Process ID.

Mmm. Do you mean of the task created by the Scheduled Task? it is a batch program. Tasklist.exe - might get you to it. Also, check wmic.exe.

comment Running multiple concurrent background processes then wait for all of them to terminate, on Windows
Having done this before, I can tell you this approach is not as hard as it seems. Additionally, is easy to maintain - to expand and add logic, and easy to train someone else to maintain it. Usually these things take on lives of their own...

comment Moving hidden files/folders with the command-line or batch-file
Well, that's an ethical stretch. "...move files and folders that have the hidden, system, or read-only attribute set...". Nothing basic about this question. You said "...surprisingly few...". If you're asking for time in exchange for 'solved' points, for a problem you know is not straightforward, holding back on requirements isn't very fair. I too don't mind rejecting a solution which does not fit the description, but at least I'll try to include the obscure gotcha's in advance.

Not bad? Thats it? It solves your request. I don't see anything about the '--filename' requirement, or I would have tested for it. Apologies, but hidden requirements are poor sport.

comment How to prevent a computer from becoming dusty?
Gravity is important! In my server room, all of our bottom mounted rack servers have dust problems. The top mounted servers stay relatively clean.
