I have created a scheduled task in Windows 7. The task is running perfectly well on my computer.

I have also exported the task to an XML file and want to create the same task on another computer automatically. How can I import the XML file pragmatically in Task Scheduler on the second computer?

You can use the schtasks command:

schtasks /Create [/S <system> [/U <username> [/P [<password>]]]] /XML <xmlfile> /TN <taskname>

For more help type schtasks /Create /? at the command prompt.

The last answer helped, but to be specific: schtasks /create /xml "filename.xml" /tn "TaskName" – Jason Capriotti Mar 3 '15 at 16:48
