comment How to pass an argument to a Windows Scheduled Task with spaces in it
Thanks Doltknuckle - I know I could also do it with a .bat file (and use "" around the param (like you do in the Powershell script. I am sure it is a bug in the Windows Task editor UI... (I am the creator of the .exe ;) - It works fine through a test harness and from the command prompt but not through the Windows UI...

comment How to pass an argument to a Windows Scheduled Task with spaces in it
Thanks, but the problem is that one of my paramaters IS a file path (and has a space in it). So in your example 100 will work, but what if you wanted to pass "C:\Start Folder"?

So the task runs ok with this formatting, but then my .NET program (which accepts the path as an arg string) does not uncompress the path from the 8.3 format. So perhaps it is a programming question - how to handle 8.3 paths?

ps - So is this is bug in the Windows Scheduled Task app? Spaces are very common!

Thanks, I appreciate the answer, however this causes further problems. Basically I am calling an EXE .NET app which I wrote which uses this param folder path for something - it does not like the 8.3 format and cannot find the path. So, is there any other way to do it?

@boot13: I tried this with no joy - I thought maybe there were clashing but I disabled the hardware and no there are no other network adapters enabled.

Thanks for the response. I tried entering the IP address directly - it does the same thing so I do not think it is a DNS issue. It's a brand new router/setup so there's no old settings, but I double checked and the IP address for the PC is being leased fine (ie. it is talking to the router initially) I set up a wifi network which works fine when internet is working, but also stops when this happens. I then cannot connect to the router over http either.
