Hi there,
   
    I need a batch script code which does the following
1)Open a command prompt
2)Run the Tasklist (Dos Command which provides the services and processes details and get the output in csv file)
    For this i run it in cmd prompt like as "tasklist>TasklistDetails.csv"
3)The above command from dos prompt works like charm, but however I am not sure how to put this command in .bat file and make to run as  windows  scheduled task

Thanks

If I understand your question correctly, I think you just need a simple ASCII Text file, say, "tasklist-cmd.bat", with the single line:

tasklist>TasklistDetails.csv

Use this file within the MS-Windows Task Scheduler (as attached, after renaming from "tasklist-cmd.bat.txt" to "tasklist-cmd.bat" in your local filing system).

The ".csv" file output will be created in the same folder where the ".bat" file is located...

...but this is not a Comma-Separated Values file (if that is what you were intending).

For that, the command will be:

tasklist /FO CSV>TasklistDetails.csv

(Please see attachment "tasklist-csv-cmd.bat.txt"; also rename to a file with just a ".bat" file extension).
tasklist-cmd.bat.txt
tasklist-csv-cmd.bat.txt

fanpages has your answer, I just wanted to share an additional option.
If the OS you are running has powershell installed then this command will also give you want you want and allow you some more customizations such as what information you want.

get-scheduledtask | export-csv  tasklist.csv

You don't need a BAT script for this, just schedule the following command line to run in Task Scheduler.

cmd /c tasklist>c:\temp\TasklistDetails.csv

Open in new window

Hard to say what the OP found as useful, but he certainly called out the last post by billprew as part of their solution, so I would suggest an equal split rather than a weighted split:

    [ fanpages ]'s comment #a41774570 (167 points)
    gdewrell's comment #a41774646 (166 points)
    Bill Prew's comment #a41775667 (166 points)

Answering the question posed is obviously not worth anything now.

This site gets worse by the day.

Sigh.
