Trying to use task scheduler to update vaulted files to SW2007. I have moved vault to localhost and am logged into vault aspdmwdmin both inside solidworks and the scheduler.  I'veselected a project folder, only update the latest, and have evenopted to only update part files (figured I'd re-run dwgslater).
Scheduled task starts, subtasks show up, etc. etc.
The problem starts once the updating begins.  Each subtaskopens its own instance of SW.  Subtask 1 finishes with areturn of "completed" in the status column of scheduler.2, 3, 4...all fine....15...oops.  It's like computer can'topen any more instances of SW and so I start to see "Failed tostart Macro" errors in the status column of scheduler.  Ican right-click close SW instances in the windows taskbar and Istart to see "completed" subtasks again.

Am I missing a setting or option?


Fresh SW2007 sp0 install off DVD, same with PDM install
dell precision 690
Win XP pro x64
version 2003
service pack 1
2 gig RAM

Thank you for any help.
