hi,

I'm triying to create a scheduled task from .net

Dim process1 As New System.Diagnostics.Process()
process1.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\WINDOWS\system32\schtasks.exe"
process1.StartInfo.Arguments = "/CREATE /TN ""name-of-task"" /TR name-of-program.exe /SC once /SD 02/11/2010 /ST 08:42:00 /TU system"
process1.Start()
process1.Close()

but the tast is not created, does any one have an idea?


                'System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("C:\WINDOWS\system32\schtasks.exe", "/CREATE /TN ""mailsender999"" /TR c:\program files\mailsender\mailsender.exe /SC once /SD 02/11/2010 /ST 08:42:00 /TU system")

                process1.Start()
                process1.Close()

process1.StartInfo.FileName = "schtasks"
