batch file scheduling

By papula ·
hello-
i would like to create a scheduled task with a batch file.

i have used schtasks correctly but whenever it creates a task it wont run. if i insert quotes into the path to the file in the scheduled task properties- it works fine.

i already have a set of quotes around the path when specified in the batch file, because the path has spaces in it, so it needed to be surrounded by quotes already. i tried 2 sets, but that did not work.

does anyone have any ideas?

thanks a lot in advance
Kevin
