    External Application scheduler problem

    New question.

    I can't seem to get an external task to execute.

    I've created a task that should execute a batch file, test.bat. Inside test.bat is a simple command, MKDIR c:\test ..

    Upon running this task via Run Now, it should run test.bat, which would create the directory \test. It does not. No error message, nothing in the log, zippo.

    Heck, if I delete test.bat alltogether, and hit Run Now of the task, it doesn't error, which it should, since it shouldn't be able to find the test.bat file to run.

    Am I doing something wrong, or is the external application task not able to run .bat files?

    (Notes: I'm on WinXP, running these tasks thru NOD32's GUI on the desktop. I deleted all other tasks, this is the only one scheduled.)

    I don't think so - none of the command line options I see in the documentation/helpfiles seem to indicate this kind of functionality. It would be nice, but generally, an update is scheduled on each machine hourly from either your update mirror, or Eset's servers anyway.

    Do you run your own update mirror on an administrator version in-house at all?
