    Task Scheduler not running programs...


    Hello Guys,

    I have a Windows 10 Laptop. Tried using Task Scheduler to automatically run Good Sync program on a predefined schedule. However, it fails to run the program. My user account has administrative priviledges.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Go to task scheduler, click on Task Scheduler Library and then Enable all tasks history (it is on the Action tab).

    Then you should see if (1) it was actioned or not and (2) why it didn't work (if it was actioned at all)

    Thanks Ix07. The task is initiating, but it is unable to start the program. Giving different error codes each time.

    I use Windows native Task Scheduler to run SyncBack backups. No problems whatsoever. Works flawlessly. "Never works"?

    Apparently, you misunderstood something. MS couldn't have possibly said anything as drastic as that.

    Moreover, in recent years Task Scheduler has become the preferred way to autorun update programs for virtually all vendors (as opposed to the former practice of doing it through registry). Google uses it, Adobe uses it, Samsung uses it, MS itself uses it and so on and so forth. It wouldn't be the case if it simply didn't work.
