Launching and sleeping multiple applications at the same time.

P: n/a
I have written several programs that need to run on different
schedules. The schedules consist of multiple business rules. Until
yesterday I was scheduling most of these applications through the NT
scheduler, but now I can no longer do that. My Administer only will
allow me to have one scheduled task that launches. So my thought was
that I need to create a program that will launch all my applications
at different times during the day. The majority of my programs run
and then exit when complete. When the programs are not running they
sleep. What is the correct way to launch multiple applications. When
I try to do this using a proceedure, the system waits for the 1st
application to stop running prior to starting the next scheduled task.

How did you try to start the applications?
