; Sets a [color="#ffffff"]shortcut[/color] with ctrl+alt+t hotkey
FileCreateShortcut(@WindowsDir & "\Explorer.exe",@DesktopDir & "\[color="#ffffff"]Shortcut[/color]  Test.lnk",@WindowsDir,"/e,c:\", "This is an Explorer link;-)", @SystemDir & "\shell32.dll",  "^!t",  "15",  @SW_MINIMIZE)

I did a search in help for "shortcut". When i clicked on the "creatshortcut()" the word shortcut was highlighted. then when i copied the post ( that has a highlighted " shortcut" ) and pasted it here,

it showed as white

???.... who knows why

Can you do something like that with a scheduled task, or can it only be copied? I'm going to look at their filetype tonight, but if anyone's scheduled tasks using autoit, tell me.

Did an install script recently that called for a scheduled task to be created with multiple schedule times. I never did figure that out, but just running SCHTASKS.EXE via RunWait() took care of business. To get multiple scheduling I just created a duplicate task for each schedule. Sort of a brute-force attack, but still better than scripting the Scheduled Tasks GUI, control-by-control, which was my other option... :P

Thanks. You put the parameters for the SCHTASKS in the runwait, right (sorry, I'm a noob.)?

That's the idea. RunWait() returns the %ErrorLevel% from the command after it runs:

; Change task logon account/password
$ExtCmd = 'SCHTASKS /Change /tn MyTask /ru ' & @ComputerName & '\MyUser /rp ' & $MyPass
$RetCode = RunWait($ExtCmd, @TempDir, @SW_MINIMIZE)
If $RetCode = 0 Then
    MsgBox(64, "Success", "Successfully changed user/password for MyTask scheduled task.")
Else
    MsgBox(16, "Error!", "Error occured while changing user/password for MyTask scheduled task.")
EndIf

:P
