Where can I find the meaning of the task scheduler exit codes? I have exit
codes of 0,1,2 and 3, but cannot find a description of the meaning.
Specifically where are you getting these codes? From SchTasks.exe?

I go to scheduled tasks and then click on the Advanced tab and then click
view log and it says: " The task completed with an exit code of (0) or (1)
or (2) or (3) or (4).
Or I can just look at the scheduled tasks and in the results column it says
0x1 or 0x2 or 0x3 or 0x4.
Task Scheduler exit codes are generated by the applications
you run under the Scheduler, not by the scheduler itself. Redirect
the standard & error output of these applications to a log file
to see what's going on.
Redirecting both is fairly trick, even order dependent:
task 1>t.txt 2>&1
The 2 or StdError must come SECOND on the command line whether
this seems to make sense or not.
