comment windows 7 task schedule / mysqldump
yep this is the problem, it is in the path. in the path ive got c:\xampp\mysql\bin` where bin contains all of the mysql binaries. when running the batch file from the command line, i just need to refer to the application name - mysqldump. When running from the task scheduler, it refuses to work unless i provide the batch file with the full path to mysqldump.exe`

comment windows 7 task schedule / mysqldump
Ive tried the verbose flag, again it works fine if i run batch file from the command line, but if i run it from through the task scheduler,a command prompt flashes up and then immediately dissappears, i never get a chance to see what it says.

The user the task is running as is the same as the user folder all the files are concerned with, so it shouldnt be a permissions problem.
