    Hourly Chime with Task Scheduler


    I have been trying to setup an hourly chime sound to stop my Logitech Z906 sound system from switching off when no activity on my computer.
    I copied this program that someone had used but cannot get it working on Task Scheduler..
    Option Explicit


    Dim sound : sound = "C:\Windows\Media\Alarm01.wav"

    Dim o : Set o = CreateObject("wmplayer.ocx")
    With o
    .url = sound
    .controls.play
    While .playstate <> 1
    wscript.sleep 100
    Wend
    .close
    End With

    Set o = Nothing

    I saved it in Notepad as a .vbs file on my desktop.

    If I double click on it on my desktop it works fine but not when on Task scheduler.

    The following are my Task Scheduler Settings...
