Scheduled task support for Chef client on Windows available for testing


#1

Chef client builds 12.17.54+ in current have support in the MSI for installing the Chef client as a scheduled task on Windows. Support for creating a service still exists, but using a scheduled task is the recommended path going forward.

We’d appreciate any testing or feedback between now and our next client release in January.

Some additional bits about this can be garnered from the pending documentation update: https://github.com/chef/chef-web-docs/pull/320/files
