Task Schedule batch file

I have a batch file (ftp) which works just fine when I manually run it. When
I set it up in Task Scheduler, status says it runs, but the cmd window pops
open a second, nothing there, and closes. I have it set to run when user is
logged on, and run with highest privileges. Well, I have tried all sorts of
combos. When run fron Task Scheduler, it says Queened in the status column.
I'm out of ideas.

Do you have a password setup for your user. Mine tasks won't execute without

Yes I do. Both users and admin have passwords. Don't know that it makes a
difference, but this is Visata Business.

Re: Task Schedule batch file

When you need to edit the schedule run command to "cmd /c
This allows windows to run the command prompt for executing the batch
file. Otherwise the batch file will not execute

Re: Task Schedule batch file

I don't suppose I could get you to post your script info (minus your
personal info obviously)? I am struggling to build an ftp batch file
that I could load for some lesser capable folks I work with for
uploading files to my ftp when they are away. There is almost nothing
posted on how to do this in 2k/xp and vista. Many thanks in advance if
you would :-)

Hello, we have the same problem using XP Professional and I have tried;

In Task [ C:\BatchFile\Ftp.bat ] and
In Task [ Cmd / C:\BatchFile\Ftp.bat ]

Am I doing something wrong ?

Task -> Actions -> Edit


Cmd /c C:\BatchFile\Ftp.bat

/c = carry out command and then terminate
