Manage Vista's Scheduled Tasks Remotely from XP?

Title pretty much explains it..

I need a way to modify Vista's Scheduled Tasks remotely from a XP machine.  I googled around and didn't see anything.  In XP you were able to see the Scheduled tasks as a share.. anyone know of anything like this in Vista?

to manage xp from xp, I used schtasks.exe. xp's schtasks however cannot modify vista. But maybe you can use vista's schtasks.exe on xp to modify vista. Haven't tried yet.
...or...of course just share vista's c:\windows\tasks - then you can edit the .job-files - works.

Just a note to all:  

Schtasks.exe is a command line util for XP.  
Vista uses a MMC snap-in that does not run on XP, but you can control the Scheduled Tasks on a remote computer with it from another Vista machine.
I know this post is quite old but I figured I would post a way of making it work.  This problem occurs in both Vista and Server 2008 when attempting to access schedule tasks in XP.
What I did was copy two files (Schtasks.exe and Schedsvc.dll) that are both in the Windows\System32 folder and placed them in a new folder on the Vista or Server 2008 box.  Then I could call that file from a command prompt and access the tasks on the XP box.  This worked perfectly for me.

Hope this helps someone else.

Any way to do this vice versa.  Manage tasks in Windows Server 2008 with Windows XP?
ibidata, this is not vice versa, this is the same as the original posting. So my answer would still be the same.
