Combine Triggers with Task Scheduler RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Is it possible to access Task Scheduler v2.0 from Windows 10 64-bit? Windows Search only shows v.1.0.

     Pls suggest how to edit Task Scheduler v.1.0 XML file to accomplish this:

     - a task that must start any day at 1st PC wakeup, if wakeup happens outside of set time period 9am-to-5pm, and should run only once a day

     Are there any Manuals & References of a scope of Task Scheduler functions & commands & examples available when editing a Task XML file?

  • Create a task the way that you want it, then export.

    Then edit the exported task, make the changes you want, save, then import again.

    If you get errors, start over.

  • Can someone suggest XML code for the above task?

    It seems Task Scheduler documentation is scars and provides neither examples, no guidance of correct Task Scheduler XML command syntax, despite GUI functionality is quite limited.

    Have you actually looked on the Internet. It seems to me that the Task Scheduler 2.0 has been around since Windows Vista which is now more than 10 years. There are hundreds of articles and examples if you just look.
