Scheduled tasks
« on: January 29, 2016, 11:04:44 AM »
Why doesn't Winpatrol scheduled tasks list all scheduled tasks as shown in the attachment.??
There are also more tasks in the dropdown in Windows scheduled tasks which are also not shown by Winpatrol.

If you look at the times of the items scheduled on the top item, there are 7 different times (two things are scheduled at the same time for 2 events). WinPatrol is showing the 7 events.

Sorry but there are still missing items. Like Apple Diag. and user fee sync.
And if you open task scheduler and go to Microsoft>Windows there are many more tasks scheduled.

Apple Diag. although it says at 1:50 everyday, look at the actual dates. It looks like it runs once a week. So you need to check the settings in the program whatever it is.

not exactly sure why checking Mac hardware on a PC.

Sorry but I have no scheduled tasks and as expected, Win patrol has always been empty in that section.

Perhaps you need to email Brett and ask.

I was looking at the Ruiware site and there is no longer an explanation for the parts of WinPatrol like there used to be.

The info is still available, plodr.  I posted it at WinPatrol Online Help Topics for future reference.

Corrine, In trying to display the Scheduled task page "http://www.winpatrol.com/scheduler.html"  I get this:
Oops, This Page Could Not Be Found!

I updated the topic I created last night.  I found some links didn't work from the "features" link, such as scheduler.  But, this works:  http://www.winpatrol.com/support/scheduler.html

Corrine, Thanks for that fix, However my original question remains In the attachment I have highlighted 3 tasks in task scheduler which are not in Winpatrol. The Apple task is not scheduled to start until the 5th of February. And to repeat there are also tasks listed under Microsoft Windows that do not show in Winpatrol.
Is there a reason why they are not shown.?
Thanks
