Tip: bat or exe file not running in Windows Task Scheduler (Windows 8)?

In order for a task to run successfully using the Windows Task Scheduler, it's important to set the "Start in (Optional)" text box of the task. If you are using the schtasks.exe command to run the task, you can include the "V1" switch so that the mentioned text box is populated automatically. The picture below shows a pre-populated task action using the schtasks.exe.
