Welcome

I want use this code in cmd

schtasks /Create /tn ProgramName /tr "C:Program FilesCPUID HWMonitor PROHWMonitorPro_x64.exe" /rl highest /sc onevent /ec system

or that without space bar

schtasks /Create /tn ProgramName /tr "C:ProgramFilesCPUIDHWMonitorPROHWMonitorPro_x64.exe" /rl highest /sc onevent /ec system

but when I go to the taskschd.msc and want run ProgramName doesn't work.

Please help me with that just add your program and test maybe this is not working on my compiuter only.

not sure of the actual syntax which may case your task to fail...you have to look at the failure reasons.

Run (@ComSpec & " /c schtasks /Create /tn ProgramName /tr 'C:\Program Files\CPUID HWMonitor PRO\HWMonitorPro_x64.exe' /rl highest /sc onevent /ec system")

you can run the task via command line, as well.

I prefer importing XML file for scheduled task, so I don't need to worry about all the params (most of, that is)

So I found the problem when I added by useing the cmd and then run taskschd.msc even as admin it still can not run from taskschd.msc

file directory in this case was C:ProgramFilesCPUIDHWMonitorPROHWMonitorPro_x64.exe

But when I chanege direction 

file directory in this case was C:UsersPatrykDesktopHWMonitorPro_x64.exe

then I can run it.

When I m adding using taskschd.msc I can add run even if the file is in program files.

 

So the problem is that the program taskschd.msc can not read the file even in administrator mode when I m useing cmd to add because the file is in the Program Files.

Any advice?

It's probably more likely that it's in "C:Program Files" and not "C:ProgramFiles" which is why it won't run it, because it's not looking for it in the right folder name.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I tested both still nothing I can not run.

Did you surround the filename and path with quotes when you tried it? You can't just remove the spaces and expect it to work, and you could probably try it using FileGetShortName if there's spaces in either the file name or the path.

I tried quotes.

When I add by cmd with this direction C:Program FilesCPUID HWMonitorPROHWMonitorPro_x64.exe

don't work

But when I chanege direction 

file directory in this case was C:UsersPatrykDesktopHWMonitorPro_x64.exe

then I can run it.

you need to show us the command you are attempting...if you are not surrounding the exe with quotes (when spaces are present), the syntax will fail on the add...look at my post = #2

This don't work when I add by cmd with this direction C:Program FilesCPUID HWMonitorPROHWMonitorPro_x64.exe and then check this function in taskschd.msc

But when I chanege direction to C:UsersPatrykDesktopHWMonitorPro_x64.exe

then I can run it.

So the problem is that the program taskschd.msc can not read the file even in administrator mode when I m useing cmd to add because the file is in the Program Files.

You tell us...what's the failure reason on attempting to /create the task?

I wrote in

Error is  can not find the specified file (0x80070002)

Look for me that the program does not have access to the file.

But this not work when I m adding by cmd but when I m adding using program taskschd.msc it is working even with file from programfiles.

How to repare this to work with cmd?

When I run this it creates the task successfully.

#RequireAdmin
Run('schtasks /Create /tn Program /tr "C:\Program Files\CPUID HWMonitor PRO\HWMonitorPro_x64.exe" /rl highest /sc onevent /ec system')

Although, the /ec parameter makes no sense to me, what exactly are you attempting to do with that?

There are a couple of Task Scheduler UDFs floating around the Examples section. Have you thought about using them?

schtasks /Create /tn Program /tr "C:Program FilesCPUID HWMonitor PROHWMonitorPro_x64.exe" /rl highest /sc onevent /ec system

to:

schtasks /Create /tn Program /tr """"C:Program FilesCPUID HWMonitor PROHWMonitorPro_x64.exe"""" /rl highest /sc onevent /ec system

You don't need a quote for each space, that's nuts.

What credentials are you trying to run the task under? You never specified them, so it's probably not going to run unless you set it up correctly.
