We have Windows 2000 Service Pack3 running in Citrix. I have administrative
privilege on this server. I was trying to setup a Visual Basic EXE which
calls a COM object and access the Database as a scheduled job. I sepcified my
user id and password while scheduling the task.

1. The task is not starting as per the schedule.

2. When I manually start the task, the task starts, but keep on running and
the program does not do what it supposed to do. I checked the log and it does
not show any error. It says when the task was started.

I checked the program for any loops etc. and there is none. The program
accesses different files which are stored in network drives.

Any idea what is causing this problem?

Thanks in advance.
Paddy
