Ok, seemed I needed to use the console exe. Now code is:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\bin\gimp-console-2.6.exe" -i -b "(save-as-jpg 
"\"DSC_2636-Color24Bit.png\"" 0.7 "\"DSC_2636-Color24Bit.jpg\"")" -b 
"(gimp-quit 0)"

Now to see if i can speed up the loading of GIMP for this as it took a few 
seconds longer to run than expected.
