wscript.Run does not work in a scheduled environment


I wrote a vbscript that works when called from the command line - that is:
cscript c:\MyScript.vbs

But does not work when called from a scheduler; where it is executing under an ID that does not have access to the console.  (In fact - the machine is logged off.)

My code is:

     Dim Shell
     Dim Command
     set Shell = WScript.createobject("")
     Command = "c:\sqldata\mssql\scripts\wget -q " & SourceFile & " -O " & TargetFile
     ReturnCode =, 0, TRUE)
     If ReturnCode > 0 Then
     End If    

The return code I am getting from is 1.

How can I do a shell command to run a task completely in the background?

Try using the administrator as the user to run the task. I believe it is an issue with the permission.
