Windows 7: Refresh not happening in task scheduler dropdown.

24 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7
Refresh not happening in task scheduler dropdown.

If we are scheduling a task on the basis of event log, then refresh is not happenning in case of dropdown.
select in the log any event which has only one source. now select explorer in the log, it does not have any corresponding source, now dropdown of source is showing size for one item.
Now again select in the log any event which has many sources. now go again select explorer in the log, now it is showing size for many items.
it seems a refresh issue.

Just a side note, the Windows 7 Task history list doesn't refresh either, but at least they fixed the GUI
