When i click on task under Task scheduler, after sometime it should show status as "Ready", instead it shows "Running" status, even exe already run and give me desired result. I need to manual stop the task.

Please advise.

It may be a window refresh issue.  Press F5 to refresh the window.

You confirmed that it wasn't a refresh problem in the Task Scheduler view?

Also, have you confirmed the EXE is not still loaded, by looking for it in Task Manager?

What EXE are you running, and what are the specifics of the job in Task Scheduler?

Refresh is not working, i already tried it.  

I have developed console application in which i am generating report in PDF and then send email to necessary people.
