Hi.
I´m running a VB program from Sheduled Tasks, the VB program is
supposed to bring up a form with information. The program works fine
when started the "normal" way but when i start it from Sheduled Tasks
it does start but it does´nt bring up the form. You can see the
program running among the processes but thats all.

Any suggestions will be gratefully noted.

Thanks.

Hi and thanks for your input.
Unfortunately the problem still occures.
Is it possible that the task won´t run because of the user account?
I created the task logged as Administrator and as such it works, when i
log in with another account (also with admin rights) it will not work
as planned. The program, an exe file, starts but the user interface
won´t show. The program runs only as a process.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi again.
The problem was that the other account didn´t have a password set.

Thanks for your help.
