Missing Schedule.exe

My system doesnt have Schedule.exe or Sched*.exe anywhere. I did a system-wide search and no scheduling files were found. I tried installing additional XP components/accessories but that still didnt include the task scheduler.

I dont know what the best course of action to fix it is. Should I do an XP reinstall - "Repair Damaged OS?" or can I just copy the EXE from the CD? Or otherwise?

I am also concerned that my XP is SP3 and I only have an SP2 install-CD.

Need Help ASAP. Thanks.

Did you try SFC?

Google SFC /SCANNOW for a refresher course.

But I checked and can't find this to be a standard part of a Microsoft issued Windows XP (no matter which SP.)

Are you thinking about SCHTASKS.EXE that thing?

SFC Not Solution (Wrong CD)

I have a PRO CD it wants XP Home, is there any other ways?

No. Looked into this a bit more.

There is no schedule.exe on the Microsoft issued XP HOME or Pro.

If you could reveal what you are trying to do, maybe SCHTASKS.EXE is what you want, but I would be guessing.

As to the missing CD, that OS seems to need it someday. That's something to put on "things I gotta find" list.
