check the log file (from memory, in scheduled tasks go to the menu bar and choose 'Advanced', then 'View Log'. Do you get any clue as to why it does not run? Check the event log as well –  natxo asenjo Jul 15 '10 at 18:58

Double check the scheduled time/date that it runs, along with the user credentials it runs under. Also make sure the current/date time is set correctly.

On the Scheduled Task's property screen, do you have the 'Run only if logged on' checkbox checked? Is the Enabled checkbox checked?
