Debugging Scheduled tasks “Last Result 0XE0434F4D”

Ran into a problem today with using a scheduled task which was not executing properly after changes being made to it’s batchjob. Ofcourse the Windows Task Scheduler doesn’t give a very good description on the error message so I found a nice article that uses the following code:

@echo off
echo %date% %time% Start of task > c:\test.log
echo User=%UserName%, Path=%path% >> c:\test.log
c:\Tools\YourTask.exe 1>>c:\test.log 2>c:\test.err
echo ErrorLevel of c:\Tools\YourTask.exe=%ErrorLevel% >> c:\test.log
echo %date% %time% End of task >> c:\test.log

Using this code to run the application produced very nice debugging results for us to work on a solution.

I found this code via but it seems to be a rather common knowledge item.
