Windows Task Scheduler

I'm trying to run a task every 12 hours, but doesn't seem to work, keeps saying an instance of the task is already running but nothing happens, how do I run it every 12 hours?

Is an instance of the task actually running? Check Task Manager to find out.

Yes there is but does not run and sometimes I get a 0x2 error which I cannot find in the windows task scheduler error list. How can I run the task every 12 hours, can you provide settings?

Will the task run if you launch it directly?

Yes, this task is already running 0x41301.

What is this task? If it can effect system-wide changes it will probably be coded to run only one instance at a given time.

Nothing of that sort, it downloads files for updating via command prompt then zips them into the appropriate folders.

Is it a batch file?
