Well I have already looked at these answers... I think my problem is different... The computer I am trying to run the scheduler on is on a domain...I wonder if you need to be a domain administrator to run a schedule task while you are logged out the computer.

If you need to run a scheduled tasks even you're not logged in to that computer, you need to assign an account to it. You will need to use an admin account if the apps that you'll be running needs it.

Also, you can install 3rd party software, FireDaemon. with this tools, you can install your executable so run as service with system account. And also, this software offers much more options for configurion your executable just the way you want it to work..

You dont need to use an administrator account to run a job under scheduled task. As long as the account has the user right to "logon as a batch job" that can be checked in the "local security settings" -> "local Policies" -> "User right assignments" (its under administrative tools)

But does the message shows unable to start or something like that or does it not have access to the file in question then it could be aquestion of user rights.

So my guess is that your problem will be solved by assigning your account to be the one the task uses for log on and check if you have the user right to log on as a batch job.
