Windows 7: Windows Task Scheduler Batch File

23 Apr 2015   #11

New York

I just found the reason it was not working. My mistake. I used double quotes while designating the file & folder paths instead of single quotes, on the batch file itself. Therefore it was not running from windows task manager, however it did work from the batch file itself.

Thank you so much for all yourhelp David, Tookeri & nekkidtruth
All the best!
