I have a Windows XP box I use for a small application I wrote with hundreds of scheduled task on it. I'm in the process of moving everything on the XP box to a Windows 7 box to run the same application but need tothe same scheduled task on the new Win 7 box as on the Win XP box.

My question is, is there an easy way for me to export ALL the scheduled task on the XO machine & import them to the Windows 7 machine without haveing to re-create them all on the new box?

you can try to export by schtasks /query and then import on win7

also there is a script which could be suitable for you posted on MS Technet page:

basically you use /query /xml to export all tasks into xml file, then use import.
the problem is that you can't bulk import to all tasks, but gotta do it one by one.
you have a batch script that does that here:
export / import scheduled tasks
