    Task Scheduler Headaches


    I've written a simple console application in Visual Studio 2010 (VB.Net) that I want to schedule with the task scheduler (in Vista Business). Everything looks ok when I schedule it. However, it ALWAYS returns the run-status of "Failure".

    What do I have to do to get my application to run in the task scheduler?

    TIA,
    Owen

    Do you have a password assigned to the Task Scheduler app?
    If not, the Task Scheduler will fail every time.

    This was an issue with XP - but I believe that it's carried over into Vista (although I can't find reference to it).

    Yes, I have a password assigned.

    I did get it working. The problem was that I was just creating the task in whatever window was open when Task Scheduler started. After I created a new folder under "Task Scheduler Library", everything worked...
