Task Scheduler Suddenly Stopped running a task

Hello,

I have a .exe file that transfers files from 1 folder to another. The .exe is scheduled to run every 15 minutes using windows task scheduler on Windows 7.
The task was running fine, until 2 days ago it suddenly stopped. it does not give an error, it says that it ran successfully, however the files are not transferred.
if I double click the .exe it runs successfully, I also tried running it from CMD, using
start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\RSTN\E2 Capture\iTag Broker Upload\E2C to iTag - XML Transfer Module.exe"
it runs, but when I edited the action to run using CMD it still did not work using the task scheduler.

Appreciate your prompt reply.

Regards,

  1. Are you saying the task scheduler isn't firing off the event or is the event being launched, but not completing it's action? I'm not sure how to fix the task scheduler. There is probably a service to start/stop it. If the action isn't completing, have the task scheduler launch the program under the administrator's account or an account that has administrative access.

    I monitored the scheduler, it says running, but nothing happens, as if it never started. There is another task the is scheduled and it runs normally.

    You should be able to check the task manager or resource monitor to see if the program is actually launching. The task scheduler should have a last status field to let you know if it completed successfully.

    Did you try changing the account the task is run under? See the second half of step 9 to see where to do this.
