(Solved) - Priorities in Task Scheduler (Windows 7)(6 posts)
- Remove Solved Status
Answer accepted and actioned. However there is no change to performance.
Also tried setting Priority to 4 as per
but again, no change to performance (Excel run via Task Scheduler is about 10x slower than manual run )
Must be doing something wrong!
Any more suggestions?
I have now realised that it is the Windows 7 Task Scheduler which is causing the problem (I never had this issue with Windows XP Schedule Tasks).
Having tried an alternative scheduler the problem disappears and the excel file now runs just as fast when scheduled as when run manually.
I am now using the System Scheduler from Splinterware.com.
Finally, I should add that my excel macro files are running in Excel 2000 on Windows 7.
Although Excel 2000 is no longer supported, I have experienced no problems running files daily over last 2 years.
I have tried subsequent versions of excel, but they are all far too slow for my processing tasks.
