With the Task Scheduler, SR points get generated twice a day by default. However, these points never get on the list of SR points available to do an SR....only manually generated points and installs/images points do. How come? Ideally, I would like to generate one point every day at 6:30pm; right now the Task Scheduler generates it, but it just goes into a black hole.

Right now set for two points per day (daily), at startup and 12:01pm. Points get generated OK, but don't get added to the list.

Are you doing a basic task or a custom one?

Crypt....I guess it's a basic one, it's the SR in the Task Scheduler Library.

Sorry I was late getting back to you, I was in a serious auto accident.

Forgive me, but what is a custom task? SR is doing what I want to my time schedule, so what is more custom than that?

But these points never get on the list of SR points available to do an SR

Apparently Basic. Also, I came across a site on the Internet that says that automatic SR points cannot be created on a daily basis, only weekly. If true, that might explain things.
