Need help with Windows task scheduler issue (tried search- no joy)

Post

     I have tried searching this issue with no success.   Need help...

      

     I am trying to run, using task scheduler on a windows server 2008 R2, a FileMaker 11 Pro .fp7 file.

     No matter what I try, the results are the same.  it fails with a 0xffffffff error.

     I have even went so far as to create a simple test.fp7 file that just send me an email to confirm it ran.

     Task Scheduler is set to run when user not logged in, has credentials, running as Administrator.

     test.fp7 is on the desktop. 

     Double click (when logged in) works just fine.

     tried scheduler with 2 different methods:

     1.   Scheduler just trying to open the test.fp7 file directly  (  C;\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Test.fp7

     2.  Path program + add arguments  ( "C;\Program Files (x86)\.....\FileMaker Pro 11.exe"  with C;\Users\Administrator\Desktop\test.fp7  as the argument.

     I have even tried a DOS batch file, same result.   ANY IDEAS?
