It is just simple script to run the URL of the website. I am not able to find any logs , in Task scheduler i am just seeing task successfully started and finished. I am trying to get logs and let you know if i can reproduce.

Have you checked the log files? If so, what did you find there? - which log files you are talking, please let me know.

You could also do something like this if you want to capture the UDF output --

; Comment out the following line in your script
;$_WD_DEBUG = $_WD_DEBUG_None ; Could also use $_WD_DEBUG_Error

$_WD_DEBUG = $_WD_DEBUG_Info ; Gives you the greatest level of details
_WD_Option('console', @ScriptDir & "\wdudf.log")

This will redirect the UDF output that normally goes to the Scite output panel to a file so that you can review it following the script execution.

Just tested a simple Edge script and it is working fine in task scheduler.

I compile it x86, and specify the location of the exe.  Run 1 time in 2 minutes.  Got it working..

If he can run it manually, he should have the rights to run under the same credentials with Task Scheduler, no ?  I suspect it is the way it was entered in Task Scheduler, but like you said we do not have much info...

Attached are the logs. I am seeing in logs msedge is crashing due to RESPONSE InitSession ERROR unknown error: MSEdge failed to start: exited normally.
  (unknown error: DevToolsActivePort file doesn't exist), while running this error is not visible.

Are you using a sandbox or something similar :

Quote

options.addArguments("--disable-dev-shm-usage"); // overcome limited resource problems
options.addArguments("--no-sandbox"); // Bypass OS security model

@MRAJ This issue has been discussed in great detail on the net. Just Google on the phrase "webdriver DevToolsActivePort file doesn't exist" and you'll find lots of discussion and potential solutions.

Can you tell us more about the task you created? Does the task execute under the logged in user's credentials?

Hello Dan,

I tried solution like giving admin privilege to my scripts, path, even i changed the msedge to script directory, and schedule in task schedule like account to run which i logged in and script path to run. I search in net but not getting proper answer what i am doing through scheduling the script. upgrading and downloading the newer version of browser and webdriver. Still i am researching on this. As it is running manually without any issue but if i schedule it is giving me issue.

I just created a task like use the account which i logged in, Run only when user is logged in, Run with highest privileges, configure for OS, run every 5 mins,

Actions: path of the exe file.  and below is the page it will load and it will not go further, i tried to run using batch script and gave the path of the script and browser if may be exe file it is not accepting. I am not sure may be some compatible issue with Task scheduler or is there any bug with edge browser. Still i am trying best but not success still. and in net i found the below but not sure where to add. I tried to run using user account not admin but still same issue.

options.addArguments("--disable-dev-shm-usage"); // overcome limited resource problems
options.addArguments("--no-sandbox"); // Bypass OS security model
