I'm quite confused by the at command, I am not even sure if something IS happening as I don't get feedback if a task has been added or not.

Is there anywhere I can check added tasks?

Have you tried typing "at" without any parameters? – John Gardeniers Jan 16 '11 at 23:48

make sure the "Task Scheduler" service is started.

type AT from the command line to get a list of scheduled tasks.

If you are running batch files, add a line that will print a date and time into a file.

echo start my batch >> c:\confirmbatch.txt
date >> c:\confirmbatch.txt
time >> c:\confirmbatch.txt

all your other commands

echo >> c:\confirmbatch.txt
echo end of my batch >> c:\confirmbatch.txt
date >> c:\confirmbatch.txt
time >> c:\confirmbatch.txt

you canput additional echo comments to capture failures along the way. If you're running and other scripting language, you can and should add these types of captures.

If you just enter at without any parameters, it will show scheduled tasks.

Also, normally you should get a hint "Added a new job with job ID = x".
