I wrote a temperature logger program and entered it as a scheduled task in Windows XP.
So far, I was able to achieve this objective:
1. Get the task to run even before anyone logs in (i.e. at the "Press Ctrl-Alt-Del" screen)
But I'm having problems with these:
1. When I log in, log out, then log back in, the scheduled task is no longer active. I can no longer see it in the Task Manager's Processes tab. I suspect it closes when I log out.
2. I tried to set the task's "Run As..." property to
DOMAIN\my-username and also tried
SYSTEM, but problem #1 above still persists.
I want my program to be running as long as Windows is active.
My program is actually a Python script. So its command line in Scheduled Tasks is:
It writes data to a file in local public folder (e.g. fully accessible by all who login locally).
