schtasks to run script at set time every weekday


Recommended Posts

I am attempting to run an Autoit.exe with schtasks every weekday @ 9:05 am.

I have the below

C:\>SchTasks /Create /TN "P10Run" /TR "O:\AUTOIT\P40 Run.au3" /SC WEEKLY /D MON,
TUE,WED,THU,FRI /ST 09:05:00
SUCCESS: The scheduled task "P10Run" has successfully been created.

I also did a "test" run :

C:\>Schtasks /Run /TN "P10Run
SUCCESS: Attempted to run the scheduled task "P10Run".

But when I run my query to verify success my "Last Result" seems to indicate that the script did not run:

C:\>SCHTASKS /QUERY /FO LIST /V /TN "P10RUN"

Is there something missing in my command? Also is there a better way to make sure that the script does in fact sun successfully?

Thanks In Advance!

As far as confirming your script runs as it should (or doesn't), why not use the Windows standard and write out to the Event Viewer? There are a ton of examples throughout the forum for doing so.

      Hi All,
      Trying to open windows explorer to a WebDav location and it's not working quite how I want, on the computers it is setup as a "network location" (as opposed to a "mapped drive", and this unfortunately can't be changed), the "Data" WebDav folder sits directly under "This PC" if that's an easier way to get to it. any suggestions as to what I can correct to get the 2nd example to work?
      ; This works, but I'm trying to avoid this as users normally see the URL style in the 2nd example below $folderToOpen = "\\mycompany.sharepoint.com@SSL\DavWWWRoot\Data" Run("Explorer.exe " & $folderToOpen) ; This does not work, it tries to open the WebDav url in the default web browser $folderToOpen = "https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/Data" Run("Explorer.exe " & $folderToOpen) ShellExecute also opens it in the default browser.
      Saw _WinAPI_ShellOpenFolderAndSelectItems but couldn't get the 2nd example to work.
      If I manually open Windows Explorer and paste in https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/Data it loads the WebDav directory without issue.
      If I have to use the pathing from the first example it is fine, just trying to give users a familiar experience.
      Thanks!

      hello autoit team
      is there any wey to check if any process run as admin or no?
      i mean e.g if i want to restart any process, now i have the ability to get the process path and commands line
      what i need is a wey to check if the process was runing as admin or no to restart it with the same state.
      here is the part that am using it to restart the process
      func _processRestart($i_pid, $s_ProcessPath) if not (ProcessExists($i_ProcessPid)) then return SetError(1, 0, -1) local $s_ProcessWorkDir = _WinAPI_GetProcessWorkingDirectory($i_ProcessPid) ProcessClose($i_ProcessPid) ProcessWaitClose($i_ProcessPid) ProcessWait(ShellExecute($i_pid,"", $s_ProcessWorkDir)) ProcessesGetList() return true endFunc thanks in advance
