Since upgrading to Server 2008 we've been experiencing issues with one of our .NET applications that we use for a client. This website summarizes exactly what our symptoms are - we are able to manually run the scheduled task but when we leave it scheduled it fails to run.

Any ideas or work-arounds to make this application run via scheduled tasks that doesn't involve the company that programmed the proprietary software to re-code things? (they don't seem to be the best at responding to bugs)

Another possible solution: Just set working directory into the action tab for you task. Maybe you using parameters for you programm, all files must be in the directory at the same level
