The Certify command line allows Certify processes to be executed without requiring the Certify User interface. The Certify command line is often used in conjunction with a scheduler, such as Windows Scheduler, to run Certify Processes unattended (at a specific-time). To run the Certify command line, the user may choose to create a batch file with the command "Certify.exe". When Certify command line is executed it is using the "unmanaged mode" where all dialogs and prompts are suppressed.

When the command "Certify.exe" is typed into the DOS prompt without any parameter, the usage notes (as shown below) will be displayed, the formatting and table below was used here for readability.
