Batch: start processing later at

[ Edited ]



I would like to try out the batch command function because I have multiple jobs to be run on 11 big rasters and each will take between 20-60 min. 

It works fine when I choose start processing now, but I get the following error message when I try to submit a job to be run at a later time. 


        The task could not scheduled because the task could not be saved. 


When I click OK, the job gets queued up in the scheduled batch job list, but would never be run. 

Could anyone help me fix this problem please? 



I am using ERDAS IMAGINE 2016 on Windows 7 and I am already made an administrator of the computer. 


Thanks a lot.

Regarding the save error - check the folder you are saving to and its permissions. I would recommend viewing;    This article includes steps including username and password to use with Windows Scheduler.


Lastly this section within the Help Documentation will assist you further:!book;uri=1d2b29b31b09e59a778ba5980ab5f5d7;breadcrumb...

Thanks angelamanchester. 

I got my domain name wrong. Now I have changed my domain name to what cmd spit out as I typed 'echo %userdomain%', and it has finished running a job for me.
