How can I manage Task Scheduler tasks from the command line in Windows 2000?

A. Windows XP contains the Schtasks command-line tool for compatibility with the Task Scheduler because the At command isn't compatible with XP. Because this incompatibility also exists in Win2K, Microsoft created the Jt utility as part of the Microsoft Windows 2000 Resource Kit. You can download the Jt utility from Microsoft's ftp site.

After you download and install the utility, you can go to the command prompt and type

 Jt /? 
to see the full Help screen. For example,
 C:\> jt /se
lists the pending tasks under the Task Scheduler.
