    Can you post a screen-shot to better clarify the issue ?

    When you say,"so how to I get it to work?", What do you mean by "it" ?

    A little more information on the pop-up messages would be helpful also.

    In Windows 8, it is not possible to create a "Message" in "Task Scheduler" because MS has removed the ability (deprecated) the option. Is there another way to get "Task Scheduler" to show a message?

    I just found this link that I have not tried, but may work: [Fix] Canít Create Tasks to Display Messages in Windows 8 Task Scheduler - Tweaking with Vishal

    It works , I've done the Powershell method many times .
    I will agree that it stinks that MS killed the ability to do this directly in Task Scheduler
    Thanks for the link I was not aware that you could this with CMD
