But it might not be necessary any more according to answer from Krzystof. 
However for me it turned out to be sufficiently reliable as I run WPKG client on 
Windows boot with delayed autostart and service configured to terminate after 
execution. The latter is important for me as I hate having useless services 
running all the time so I really love the feature to have WPKG client executed 
once at boot and then terminate completely. So it's really OFF and not consuming 
any resources during daily work.

Yes, it's Windows task export. Import it using

schtasks /create /XML "\path\to\task.xml" /RU "SYSTEM" /TN "\WPKG\run-at-boot"

The TN path will also insert the task into subfolder on task scheduler library.

Yes we could, but I have copied the list as my response clarifies some things 
about the task I have posted and I would like everyone to be informed about 
this. Please keep sending responses to the list as well.
