    Resolved - Windows 8 Task Scheduler suddenly not working

    I built a new PC with Windows 8 about 6 to 8 months ago. At that time I spent a good deal of time working out the differences between SCHEDULED TASKS in Windows XP and TASK SCHEDULER in Windows 8. By the time I was done I had about 20 individual personal tasks running successfully and they worked fine for months.

    Now suddenly today I realized I hadn't seen any tasks occur (typically messages displayed in Word) in a while. In the interim I had upgraded from Word 2002 to Word 2007 and then downgraded back to Word 2003 (couldn't deal with the macro security .xlsm issues with my macros in 2007).

    Now in TASK SCEHDULER if I highlight a task and hit RUN nothing happens.

    Anyone have any ideas on what has taken place here? Could it be the change in MS-Word versions?

    Thanks,
    BH

    Well.......typing out the question got my mind going in the correct direction. The PATH listed on each task is to Office10 and of course Office 2003 is filed under Office11.

    Editing the path in each task from 10 to 11 will be required but it does solve the problem.
