SchTasks

P: 3
This used to work on a Windows 2000 PC.
I have an Access database on a shared network that calls a task on a now Windows 7 PC that does not appear to be working. I am using the following in the command line:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SCHTASKS /run/s \\"computer name" /tn "Name of scheduled task".
Any ideas why this would not work? I am not receiving an error message so it is hard to determine.
Thank you

Check group policies under windows.
Win7 changed a lot of things that the scheduler used to be able to do... also, if the PC is part of an enterprise network, the IT-Security team could have restricted what can and can not be done.

A lot of my autoschedules were broken this way when the company went to Win7

I've moved this to the Windows forum (as it's fundamentally a Windows question).
