I have a scheduled task that needs to be run 3 times per day.
I have the option between running the task on either a 2008 windows server machine or a windows 7 64 bit regular machine. Both machines may or may not have users logged on to them at any given time.
The process is not intensive at all. It just opens a browser, downloads a small file, and exists.
- which machine should I schedule this task on?
- are there any issues with the task running while a user is logged on?
- is it possible to run the task with nobody logged onto the machine?
