I have a task that used to execute fine. However, after a computer crash it no longer works properly. I isolated the problematic action and have attached it here.

When I run this simple tasks using the Task Builder (click on Run) the command prompt opens up, filebot.cmd is properly executed, and the log file (temp.txt) is written to the hard disk.

However, if I run this simple task from the Task Administrator, the command prompt opens up, filebot.cmd is properly executed, but the log file (temp.txt) is not written to the hard disk.

Why is the log file now only written when running from the Task Builder but not from the Task Administrator? What is the difference in function between the two?

p.s. As a test: A simple write to text file works fine from the Task Administrator.
