Windows Scheduled Task

We were in the process of testing a script we had written to automate sage and insert some data reading if from a text file. Later the requirement was to read this data automatically on a scheduled basis for scheduling we suggested using Windows Scheduled Tasks. We tested the script working perfectly on the local machine and then using Remote Desktop we ported the exe to server and tried to test but the script would not do anything we later found that the exe was working fine the only problem is that when a task being scheduled in windows needs to interact using GUI is always does so on the console session.

Took quite some time to figure this out this is a handy information.
