Scheduled Task at System Startup issue

Hello,
I'm trying to setup a Scheduled Task that runs at Windows startup.  I have successfully created the task and set it to "System Startup".  I even used local credentials but the task is unable to run at startup.  I do not find any information in the Event Viewer and the only place I see that it failed is in the Scheduled Tasks where it indicates Last Result as 0x1.  If I manually launch this task it runs fine and I see the process in the task manager.  It just doesn't seem to run at startup... Any ideas?

Here is the info from the Scheduled Tasks Log...
"Compagnie 3.job" (dbr.exe)
      Started 5/6/2009 3:15:23 PM
"Compagnie 2.job" (dbr.exe)
      Started 5/6/2009 3:15:24 PM
"Compagnie 1.job" (dbr.exe)
      Started 5/6/2009 3:15:25 PM
"Compagnie 3.job" (dbr.exe)
      Finished 5/6/2009 3:15:25 PM
      Result: The task completed with an exit code of (1).

sthubert--Maybe we need to see the code you are using to schedule the task.  And this may uncover more of the reason

try setting the task scheduler to run the program under an adminstrator account. This should show if its file permissions etc.

Sorry for the late response but I think the issue was that I needed to have the accounts able to act as a system service.  Haven't tested it because I just made them in to services using srvany application.  Thanks.
