Windows 7: Task Scheduler - Create New Task

19 Sep 2011   #30

Windows 7 Ultimate, 64 Bit
Task in Windows Enterprise which works even after log off

Hello All,

I wanted to create a task which will work even after I logoff.

I am able to create a task does it say that I have rights to create a task which will run even I logoff from account.

I wanted to make it a task which will run even if someone else logs in with their credentials.. kinda system task.

Kindly guide me through this.

I am trying to schedule a command (batch) file because I need to include the date in the results (file name). But the scheduler will not execute the batch code and run the progeam with the arguments I provide -- the command and arguments work fine when I do it and the batch part also works -- just not together as a scheduled task.

Running on W7 HP

The lines of the command file are:

@echo off
For /f "tokens=2-4 delims=/ " %%a in ('date /t') do (set mydate=%%c-%%a-%%b)
mysqldump -h -e -c --single-transaction --user=XXXXXXX --password=YYYYYY charscore > c:\dbbackup\charscore%mydate%.sql

Ant help would be greatly appreciated.

Windows 7
Schedule a Service

ITunes will not recognize my devices until I stop and start "Apple mobile device" in the services. It is running automatically. So I have created a shortcut to Services which helps a bit so I can manually stop and start, but I would like to set up stopping and starting the service through the scheduler.

However, I don't know where the "exe" would be, if there is one. I've tried creating a "bat" file but that also, if it was working, didn't allow iTunes to see devices.

Added information - I have uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes more than once.

May have found it, C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support but still don't know how to stop and start it.

Still no joy but I think just starting Apple...won't do it because I have to stop it and then restart it when I do it manually.

In the tab "Actions", there is a field labeled "start in" located under arguments. I am clear on everything else but this interests me. If somebody could clearify its use I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Welcome to SevenForums,

It depends what kind of alert you want, you can specify when workstation unlock under 'Triggers' (i've never actually tested this trigger before though)
