I'm a software developer at a telco supporting line-of-business applications. We use a variety of technologies from ASP.NET to Perl. I've come to appreciate SQL more over time, and I now spend most of my time in the database.

If you'd like to learn SQL properly, consider the awesome free SQL course from Stanford. The organization behind the course offers many other classes. I'm enjoying the Fantasy and Science Fiction course.

comment Task scheduler does not kill task
@KitRoed: Say a task hangs. Then when the next scheduled run comes around, the first action will kill the hanging task.

comment Which IP addresses are using remote dekstop?
Thanks for your answer. It's surprising that such basic information is not logged! Our firewall does have good logging, I'll set it up to monitor connections to port 3389.

comment Task scheduler does not kill task
I've attached a debugger to the task, and it's hanging in a third-party DLL. It does not respond to anything. The question is why Task Scheduler doesn't kill it, using TerminateProcess, which kills a process no matter what

Yes, that option is checked (as mentioned in the question)

comment Task scheduler does not kill task
@HopelessN00b: The task does not respond to anything-- it's stuck. Why does Win2008 not kill it (end process) like Win2003 did?

@HopelessN00b: Why does Win2008 not kill a scheduled task when it has run longer than the "Stop the task if it runs longer than" setting?
