What is the difference between executing a Task from foreground and background?
In one of our servers we use VC 7.1.4 Licensed version.
By default all our VisualCron execute tasks are started with the ‘background execution’ setting.
When I trigger a task from VisaulCron with the ‘foreground execution’ setting applied, the task finishes in around 4 hours whereas when it is executed via background execution setting it takes 12 hours. Executing tasks in the foreground is not a feasible workaround . We need know how we can run tasks with background execution setting and achieve the same build times as foreground execution.

Kindly assist in this regard

The reason why it exits after so long time is because your process never exits properly. Maybe a popup or other message is blocking the application from exiting.
