Name Description

Backward Compatible Task Monitoring

A backward compatible task is a Task Scheduler 1.0 task that is used in the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000 operating systems. A task will run if all of its conditions are met after the task is triggered to start.  You can monitor a task by viewing the task's history and status.

Backward Compatible Task Registration

A backward compatible task is a Task Scheduler 1.0 task that is used in the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000 operating systems. A Task Scheduler 1.0 task can be registered (scheduled) to execute any of the following application or file types: Win32 applications, Win16 applications, OS/2 applications, MS-DOS applications, batch files (*.bat), command files (*.cmd), or any properly registered file type.

You can register a Task Scheduler 1.0 task in one of three ways:

  • Use the schtasks.exe command-line tool to define and register a version 1.0 task.
  • Use Task Scheduler to define and register a task compatible with earlier operating systems. Click the Create Task action in Task Scheduler, set the Configure for box on the General tab to Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, or Windows 2000
  • Use Task Scheduler to import a Task Scheduler 1.0 task from an XML file.
