Using...

@echo off
R CMD BATCH C:\Users\Tyler\Desktop\Make_Task\task.R

makes strong assumptions about where R is located and if it's on the user's path. As @apwheele points out using the full path name to run a batch file is more reliable.

@echo off
"C:\R\R-3.2.2\bin\x64\R.exe" CMD BATCH C:\Users\Tyler\Desktop\Make_Task\task.R

If the path of your R file has spaces in it, make sure to enclose the path in quotes otherwise the code won't run:

@echo off
"C:\R\R-3.2.2\bin\x64\R.exe" CMD BATCH "C:\Users\Tyler\Desktop\Some Other Path\task.R"
