There are usualy few problems.

1. Something bad in transer to cmd. There usualy help when you change extention from bat tu cmd

2. You are trying to do something withou coresponding user rights. Try to setu user with runing script admin no systemaccount.

3. Setup arguments in sheduler and work directory c:/myfile/

Ok

Then action is start a program


In program/script write only test.bat

And in optional start in write c:\myfile\

how did you add it to task manager?  through the GUI or from command line?
if from the GUI then the user that you created under must be logged in.
set it from the command line. (then it runs with administrative permission, no matter who is logged in or even if noone is logged in.)
cmd prompt with elevated privileges
c:\> at 22:00 /every:m,t,w,th,f c:\myfile\test.bat

here's a link for the command line formatting of the at command:

Sara, what makes you think it does not run?
Task Scheduler does not run programs interactively unless we set it up to "only run when the user is logged on" - if we don't select that, it will run, but invisible.
Could you make sure it does not run invisible?

McKnife:
Here is my simple bat file for snapdrive schedule. if the schedule runs then there should be an snapshot, I do not see the snapshot.
I know that comand runs when I am in comand prompt .

@echo off
sdcli snap create -s %computername%_%date:~4,2%_%date:~7,2%_%date:~12,2%_%time:~0,2%

Could it be it needs elevated rights? If so, try to check the box next to "run with highest privileges" in the task properties.
