Manage Scheduled Tasks from a script

Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provide a simple way to manage Scheduled Tasks using the Win32_ScheduledJob class and an example is provided here.

Sometimes you can experience no result from this script, this issue happened because Windows provide 2 method for generating scheduled tasks: AT.EXE and SCHTASK.EXE that use different and not compatible APIs.

The WMI interface is compatible only with API used by AT.EXE and GUI provided by Windows 2000.
