we used the following scenario sucessfully over a long period of time:
- Remotely log onto a Win XP server, which is used by one user most/all of time
- Schedule a task using the "task planner"
- Task was run at "almost" each scheduled point of time (seldom it did not start, presumably when someone else was logged in).
For some time now, we share the server with several users. Even though I checked an option for running independently of the logged in user, this option does not seem to work. Now, the task is seldom executed, not seldom not executed.
Now, the question is: is there some other option I can't see which disables the execution OR, even better, is there some other tool which we can use for task scheduling on Win XP servers with several different users?
