I have a Windows server 2008 R2 server that I am trying to get a command / batch file to run in a scheduled task.
I have read on the net that there is a problem with command / batch files that contain quotation marks in command line and arguments.
I can run other command / batch files from Task Scheduler that don't have quotation marks and they run fine, but in this instance I need to be able to run a command line that has got.

Does anyone know of a fix or work around to be able to schedule these tasks?

You need to create a batch file that calls up the other batch file this should bypass the problem.

You created a batch file that calls up the other batch file with same results?  Did you go to options and make sure you have the Start in option configured?
