Hi,
you could try to search for cc_config in other forums. SETI gives you 12 answers, maybe one answer is close to your problem. This forum gives you 2 hits, one of them is your post.

:START
echo off
time /t
PING -n 1200 127.0.0.1>nul
boinccmd --project http://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/ update
GOTO START
--------------

The above batch file will update LHC every 1200 seconds. Copy and paste into a text file with the extension .bat and save into your BOINC directory. Create a shortcut and place on your desktop and then just double click it.

To suit your own needs change 1200 to the update time you want and change the http etc to the project url you require.

This is not the neatest way to do it but it works...

Task Schedular would probably work fine as well with a few more options over execution.

This works just fine :-)

My 'cc_config.xml' file:
<cc_config>
    <options>
       <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
       <report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
       <max_file_xfers>50</max_file_xfers>
       <max_file_xfers_per_project>25</max_file_xfers_per_project>
    </options>
</cc_config>

It does - but its decidely server unfriendly, and BOINC prefer crunchers not to use it as a routine measure. It originally came in as a facility to assist testing and development.

<report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>

... places a big extra loading on Projects Servers, which seems a little mute when stats sites are only refreshed every 2-4 hours depending on the site.

A somewhat easier way is suspend your other projects long enough for MW to grab wu's and then resume the other projects.
