Is there a way to see what tasks are scheduled in Windows ME/200/XP that are in the "Scheduled Tasks" portion of the control panel? Thanks

Go to the link below, then scroll down the page until you find "Using the Task Scheduler" (it's near the bottom).  Download it and have a look.

That example is creating a DLL to make life easy, but it doesn't use anything that's not part of Windows.  I suppose it'd be possible to use the code and not build a DLL, but I don't really see the point.  What difference does it make if the code is built directly into your program or if your program comes with an extra DLL that contains the code?

Sorry, I just don't like having to use any other file other than what's already on Windows.
