Windows Task Scheduler

I have found the following article which seems to explain entirely how to work with Windows Task Scheduler:
http://community.bartdesmet.net/blogs/bart/archive/2008/02/23/calling-the-task-scheduler-in-windows-vista-and-windows-server-2008-from-managed-code.aspx

But I want to be able to work within XP, Vista, and Win7. What I am not sure about is if there is a completely different version of the task scheduler in XP, and it I need different libraries to access it. If so, are there any example wrappers that can work with both schedulers? Help!

I think you can use Quartz.Net to replace Windows Task Scheduler

Answer 3

I wish to use the Windows Task Scheduler, not a different solution, since Windows has that built in so well as a service. But I want to be able to work within XP, Vista, and Win7. What I am not sure about is if there is a completely different version of the task scheduler in XP, and it I need different libraries to access it. If so, are there any example wrappers that can work with both schedulers? Help!
