Windows 2000 includes a Scheduled Tasks tool that you can use to configure many tasks, including scripts, documents, and programs. Although you can configure these tasks remotely by using a Terminal Services session, you cannot interact with the task through a Terminal Services session when it runs.


All scheduled tasks run in the context of session 0 (the console). For example, if you schedule Calculator to start every day at 11:00 A.M., Calculator starts every day at 11:00 A.M. on the console, even if you configured the task through a Terminal Services session.
