A good Scheduler for Windows 2003 to run Excel Reports?

Hello Everyone,
Can someone point me to a great but cheap Task Scheduler that I can use with Windows 2003? I have a couple Excel files that need to run each day and the only way the regular task scheduler works is if I am logged in to the server. I need it to open and run it's event when not logged in.

We use system scheduler, works like a charm:


Another good one is wCRON: http://cronw.sourceforge.net/

Currently I have a couple Excel files that once they are opened do everything they need to do. Can you elaborate as to how your doing it? I tried but got a message in the log file that says it wasn't a valid win32 app? Any ideas?
I just configure the talk to open the excel file:
We are running this app on XP, Sever2003 SP2, and Server 2008 R2. Never had the error message you mention. Did you try wCRON?
