HyperV - Windows 2012 - Scheduler Issue

Postby casey3353 on Thu Nov 07, 2013 5:14 am

I'm having issues with the scheduler.
I've got a Hyper-V box running a Windows 2012 virtual. Logging onto this virtual's console from the hyperV box as a local admin, I installed the latest Wintask (x64).
I can get my wintask jobs to run manually, but the scheduler is playing up. I rebooted after installing Wintask.

Trying to open the scheduler from taskbar icon brings up an error box:
Error.Impossible to open Scheduler window!

I can open the scheduler window from c:\Program Files(x86)\WinTask\Bin\x64\SchedCfg.exe
however when I try to create new tasks in here, or when clicking on the "Scheduler Options" Tab, I receive errors
"Error reading in configuration file!" or "Error writing in configuration file!"

This is the 30-day trial version, but I will be buying this as soon as I can get this running.

Thanks.

Hello,

For now WinTask x64 Scheduler is not supported under 2012. You have to use the Windows 2012 Scheduler and you schedule this command line:
"c:\program files (x86)\wintask\bin\taskexec.exe" "c:\program files (x86)\wintask\scripts\my_script.rob"
And a session must be opened when the scheduled task starts (if the script uses interactive actions).

Regards.

Okay thanks.
At this stage, I have a choice as to what OS I can run.
The wintask x64 says that windows 8 is supported, so I'll reinstall these with a new OS.
