  10. ECHO         The batch file uses a temporary XML file to create a Scheduled

  12. ECHO         registry at each logon and at each workstation lock event.
  13. ECHO         Return code ^("ErrorLevel"^) 0 if all seems to go well, 1 for
  14. ECHO         invalid command line arguments, 2 if a restart with elevated
  15. ECHO         privileges was required.
