  1. Invoke sceduled task from batch?


    Is there any way to invoke a scheduled task from a script? I know the tasks can be manually invoked from the Task Scheduler's GUI so maybe there's a way to do it programmatically. Yes?

    :)

  2. Task scheduler simply refuses to run a batch script

    Here are a few comments for starters:

    • Please upload StartupSet.lnk.
    • Where does it reside?
    • Instead of invoking

      "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe" /c start StartupSet.lnk

      and specifying the optional Startup folder

      C:\Users\Tinker Alpha\Documents\Planes\Wallpaper\Background Files\

      keep it simple by invoking

      StartupSet.bat

      directly. Since it contains fully qualfied paths, you do not need to worry about the startup folder.
    • To debug the issue, invoke this batch file with the Task Scheduler:

      @Echo off

      if not exist c:\Log md c:\Log

      echo The task ran on %date% at %time% >> c:\Log\Test.txt

      Test it by right-clicking the scheduled task, then examine c:\Log\Test.txt
    Remember that the Task Scheduler panel does not auto-refresh itself. To see the current status of a task, you must press F5.

    You could code your actual batch file more elegantly like so:

    Code:
    if %HH% LSS 9  echo Less than 9 & goto :eofif %HH% GEQ 9  echo 9 or more   & goto :eofif %HH% GEQ 11 echo 11 or more  & goto :eof

  3. Task Scheduler in Windows 10

    More information required, i.e.

    • The task you're trying to run, e.g. the batch file that you invoke.
    • The contents of the .xml file you get when you export the task.
