Project Password and Scheduling via Windows Scheduler

Does anyone know of a way to schedule an EG project that has a "password to open" enabled on the project? I scheduled a weekly project to run and noticed I didn't receive an e-mail that it had run this morning. Sure enough when I came in there was a window prompting me to enter the project password. It makes completely sense but I would like to get this working without dropping the security on the project. Does anyone know if there is a way to edit the vbs to include the password?

I don't know the direct answer to your question, but a work-around would be to use Windows security to limit access to the .egp file.

The Application.Open method within the VBScript can take a password as well. For example:

project = app.Open("c:\projects\proj.egp","mysecretpassword")
