I have scripted AT2.bat to generate a time that is 2 minutes in the future, and is suitable for using with the AT command.

NOTE: If you install Soon.exe, the near-future command scheduler, you don't need this tip.

The syntax for using AT2.bat is:

\[call\] AT2 TPlusTwo

Where TPlusTwo is a call directed environment variable that will contain a time, that is two minutes in the future, and suitable for using with the AT command.

AT2.bat contains:

                              @echo off                              if \{%1\}==\{\} @echo Syntax: AT2 Time&goto :EOF                              setlocal                              set vb="%TEMP%\AT2_%RANDOM%.vbs"                              @echo.Wscript.Echo DateAdd("n", "2", (now))>%vb%                              for /f "Tokens=1*" %%a in ('cscript //nologo %vb%') do (                               set tm=%%b                              )                              set tm=%tm: =%                              del /q %vb%                              endlocal&set %1=%tm%
