    113113The Scheduled Task Wizard is pretty straightforward, but the repetition settings are pretty buried.  To create the Scheduled Task:
    114114
    115  1 Start the Scheduled Task Wizard(Start > Control Panel > Scheduled Tasks > Add Scheduled Task). Click "Next >".
    116  2 Use "Browse..." to select the batch file you just created as the program you wish to run.
    117  3 Give the task a name, select "Daily". Click "Next >".
    118  4 Set "Start time:" to 12:00 AM, "Perform this task:" to "Every Day", "Start date:" to current date. Click "Next >".
    119  5 Enter a user. I had problems running the task as the unprivileged user that runs tracd, so I set myself as the user (definitely not as secure, but our Trac is on our local intranet). Click "Next >".
    120  6 Check "Open advanced properties..." and click "Finish". The edit task dialog will pop up.
    121  7 Click "Schedule" tab, then "Advanced...".
    122  8 Check "Repeat task", set "Every:" to your desired interval. Set "Duration:" to 24 hours.
    123  9 Click "OK", "OK" to close the dialogs.
     115 1. Start the Scheduled Task Wizard(Start > Control Panel > Scheduled Tasks > Add Scheduled Task). Click "Next >".
     116 2. Use "Browse..." to select the batch file you just created as the program you wish to run.
     117 3. Give the task a name, select "Daily". Click "Next >".
     118 4. Set "Start time:" to 12:00 AM, "Perform this task:" to "Every Day", "Start date:" to current date. Click "Next >".
     119 5. Enter a user. I had problems running the task as the unprivileged user that runs tracd, so I set myself as the user (definitely not as secure, but our Trac is on our local intranet). Click "Next >".

     122 8. Check "Repeat task", set "Every:" to your desired interval. Set "Duration:" to 24 hours.
     123 9. Click "OK", "OK" to close the dialogs.

    125125Test your task by right-clicking it and selecting "Run".  You should see a command-line window briefly appear running your batch file.  Check your Trac to make sure you have new tickets.
