Windows 7 work station unable to run Scheduled Tasks.

We are trying to implement a relay service on a basic windows 7 machine.  The only thing the computer has is Windows and Crosstech (asset management & remote control software).  We set up a basic task to run a service, everynight at 6:30, when the computer is logged-off.  As far as we can see, everything on the task is set-up correctly, but the service is not running & there is no history log being created for running the service - so obvioulsy we are missing a setting.  Any help here???  Does anyone know if Crosstech can interupt a task?  the work station is not in a domain and the window's firewall has been disabled.  The settings to run while the machine is logged-off have also been selected.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  we're just scratching our heads...

what context is the task running in? System? try using a batch file that will provide you with some logging capabilities

Windows 7 Task Scheduler history is disabled by default.  In the actions pane you need to click Enable All Tasks History to turn it on.

I ended up having to move the machine to a physical box. Running in VMWARE the machine would stop all services in the event of a logoff. Running on a physical box seemed to solve the issue. Not sure why VMWARE was acting in this manner but it appears to be resolved now.

Glad your new solution works. BTW you didn't mention that it was running in a Vmware virtual machine
