Build a backup project. Schedule your job with MySQL Administrator.

Now, open Control Panel | Scheduled Tasks.

Is your backup job there?

If it is, right click and select properties.
On the Task tab, check that "Enabled" is checked.
In "Run as", check that the correct Windows username to run the task is shown.
Click on Set password, and enter the Windows password to match the Windows user that will run the task.
Save the Scheduled job.
When it's saved correctly, open the Scheduled tasks again, right click your job, and select "Run".

Does your job run? The result of the Run will be in Event Viewer.

The password for the scheduled job is the Windows user password, not the mysql user password.

The mysql user and password is set in the stored connection built with mysql administrator on Tools | Manage Connections.

Good luck.
