Scheduled task getting skipped... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have tried the following for scheduling an exe (independent of any other output / windows service) in both

    a)Windows Xp -SP2 & SP3 

    b)Windows server 2003 SP1

    Schedule time :5:00AM Daily  

    1) using Windows scheduler - Daily & also Weekly (Monday thru Sunday) 

    => Both option gives Randomly skipped Schedules.

    2) Used 3rd party Scheduler software

    => gives Randomly skipped Schedules.

    3) Wrote my own Scheduler in DOS ( not "AT"   task scheduling)

    => gives Randomly skipped Schedules.

    Can some one suggest any ideas or solution or any alternative..

  • Hi Carey,

    Thanks for the reply,

    I tried the  Windows scheduling process also , still it is getting skipped.


    a)Windows Xp -SP2 & SP3 

    b)Windows server 2003 SP1

    File types

    ( both .bat  & .exe files) 

    Windows scheduling process

    1) GUI method - schedule daily using Task Scheduler in control panel 

    2) AT method- Using command prompt for scheduling.

    scheduling batch files are somewhat stable than scheduling exe file. 

    But still it skipps intermittently
