Hi All,

  I have small D program which run's perfectly when i run it 
manually, but when I schedule the same via windows task scheduler 
and choose the option "Run whether user is logged on or not" the 
program does not execute, the task scheduler job log return code 
4294967295(Invalid argument). SO request you help on this.

Execution Steps
test.exe <option>

Option: run , dryrun  ,help

Example Execution : test.exe dryrun
Program:
import std.stdio;
import std.getopt;
import std.path;
import core.stdc.stdlib: exit;

void Test1(string Step) {
writeln("This is Test1 :", Step);
}
void Test2() {
writeln("This is Test2");
}
void Test3() {
writeln("This is Help");
}

void main (string[] args) {
if (args.length <= 1 || args.length > 2 ) { writeln("No Arguments 
Provided"); exit(-1); }
string op = args[1];
try {
getopt(args, std.getopt.config.caseInsensitive, 
std.getopt.config.stopOnFirstNonOption);
  switch (op) {
  	case "dryrun" , "run" :
		auto Step = op;
		Test1(Step);
		Test2;
		break;
	case "help" :
		Test3;
		break;
	default :
		 writefln("Unknown operation");
	}
} catch (Exception exc)
	{ writefln("Error processing command line arguments: %s", 
exc.msg);}
}

You're not using getopt in the sample; if you comment that line out, do you still have the problem? How are you passing arguments in Task Scheduler? You should be using the textbox for arguments, not the same one the application is passed in. Program/script: test.exe Add arguments: dryrun, run If that's correct, create a batch file that takes no arguments and calls your application and try running the batch file via Task Scheduler. If that fails, the application is probably trying to do something it doesn't have permission to do. If it succeeds, the task command is probably not set up correctly. --Ryan
