    Task Scheduler issue


    For my Windows XP I have a vbs that works from command line and in my task scheduler if I am logged on in my workstation. If I log off the scheduled job never works and always shows status of Running after it is kicked off while I am not logged off. Please advise how I can get it to work while I am logged off.

    Check out event viewer as well and look for any errors or warnings during the time the task is set to run. You can also adjust the properties of the task to kill it after a certain time period if it gets stuck.
