Re: IU Batch File Instructions Tweaking Thread

From Attitudeda in old thread: "http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,3291016

"It's a great bat file only thing is I still can't get it to work in Task Scheduler."

I haven't tried that yet, been too busy trying to understand what I was trying to do in the first place. I'll try it later and post my results, or if someone already knows or can try it and post the results, that would be great.

Thanks I notice that you changed the name of the batch file to Intelligent.bat, I believe that when GT and Zupe made this batch file they called it cegetter.

To get it to work with Task Scheduler you need to do this:

Go to the control and start Task scheduler. Double click Add New Task, now browse to the .bat file. (Or as MeeToo has it named Intelligent.bat) Now you need to input your times that you want it to run. Press ok when finished. (With Win 2k and XP please log in as the Admin and you will be prompted for a password.)

To verify that you have it setup correctly right click on the Scheduled task you just created, and select Run. If it does not run then you need to post how you have setup along with what O/S you are running it on, and what Firewall you have on the system.

Yes, I changed the name "cegetter" to "intelligent" because ce in cegetter stands for Corporate Edition. Intelligent is easily associated with the Intelligent Updater we're working with also.

Where do I find the password it wants???? My system XP home boots up as administrator, and I never set a password.
Boots right up to desktop... ??

This thread might help others:

»XP home (password)

Tomorrow I'll manually run it after I see it is changed to 5/14, and that will verify the manual operation works.....

Then I'll dive into the Admin password thingie......
I can't wait to find out what I screw up next!!!

I've added a note about making a password if none was made.

I think the instructions are pretty clear now and ready to use for newcomers, so feel free to pass it along.
Although I'll keep tweaking it ofcourse, if people come up with new info/tweaks. Keep posting them on this thread.

MeeToo, great job you did on this. I got Task Scheduler to run.

Thanks to all of you! Was a great team effort.

In my last edit I fixed some grammar/spelling and reworded the intro paragraph and otherwise attempted to make it clearer. If you catch things like that, please either IM or post it here.

This was fun to work on, I love that little program, and now with it in Task scheduler, I'm almost sad I won't have to click on it everyday

Just a minor point. You should add to the 'requirements' that Task Scheduler must be running. I'm sure this is self evident, but there are people who run minimalist WinDoze installations. Especially people who've set up their systems with 98lite. (like me perhaps? hehehe)
