Yes. But it's the pipe at the end of that line that tells Condor to run the script to get configuration output, not the executable bit (does windows even have the notion of an executable bit? I didn't think it did...) that indicates this.

You can run a script, a binary, anything really. It only has to output valid key/value pairs that follow the Condor configuration file syntax rules.

A simple bat script example would be:

type \\myserver\myshare$\some\path\configuration.local

That would be sufficient to make it work.
