If you have successfully set up java as a service then don't use the batch
file.  Start ant directly from java.  From the manual:

Hope this helps,

I think you would want to run something like Maven as a service, not ANT 

Personally I use Windows scheduled tasks to run continuous builds - they 
can be configured to start when computer boots up. The only drawback is 
that on XP+ computers  when I log out all running scheduled tasks are 
aborted, so I do not logout once I logged onto one of our build computers.
