The file in the instructions were created with snapshots from Windows XP. The interface from Windows7 and Windows Server 2008 for the Task Scheduler has more features and is a bit different.

Note: If you are having problems getting the report to run, try typing in the report command into a DOS prompt. This will give you immediate feedback to make sure the command you are using is getting executed. Doing this prior to using the command in the scheduler will help to get the command setup.
