Windows Scheduling and Job Management - Best Software?

Posted on 2011-04-23

The Task Scheduler in Windows Server 2003 and 2008 seems to be very limited.

What are the best 2 or 3 job scheduling products in terms of reliability and job logging detail?

I have tried VisualCron and WinAutomation.  Both are good in their own way.

Thanks for any suggestions.

    I wish there were more suggestions.  I am going to assign points and close the case.  I am disappointed that I did not get more suggestions.
