An oft-used technique to work around some of those problems is to schedule a wrapper batch that invokes the real task.

The wrapper task always succeeds, regardless of whether the real task does or not, thereby bypassing some of the problems. I used to have a fairly elaborate .cmd file that would also reschedule itself (with the name of the passed real command to be run) every hour 5 minutes etc if your needs are for a smaller granularity than daily.

I might be able to dig a copy out if anyone was interested.


Okay you lot, get your wings on the left, halos on the right. It's one size fits all, and "No!", you can't have a different color.
Pick up your cloud down the end and "Yes" if you get allocated a grey one they are a bit damp under foot, but someone has to get them.
Get used to the wings fast cos its an 8 hour day...unless the Govenor calls for a cyclone or hurricane, in which case 16 hour shifts are mandatory.
Just be grateful that you arrived just as the tornado season finished. Them buggers are real work.
