Making a system command work via a scheduled task.

DeryniMagic has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This snippet of code works well if I run it from the command line, but does not output anything if I invoke it via a scheduled task. Any pointers as to what I'm doing wrong would be appreciated.

use strict; use IO::File; my @groups = qx/net localgroup/; my $fhout = IO::File->new("g:\\iw-home\\scripts\\Test.txt", 'w'); foreach my $grp (@groups) { print $fhout $grp , "\n"; }
