Scheduled Task Permissions

I have a scheduled task that is set to run an .exe under my account, which is a domain admin.  If I double-click the .exe, the program runs as expected.  However, the scheduled task fails to run with a "Could not start" error.  I recently had some issues with my GPO and had to do a dcgpofix.  I'm thinking that my scheduled task problem has to do with the fact that my account does not have the necessary permissions to run tasks.  What permissions do I have to grant in order to get this to work?

If the account you are running it under is a domain admin, I wouldn't think it would be a permissions issue.  If it is a permissions issue, you probably need "Run as a Batch" right defined in the local policy.  It could also be a path issue, make sure the path and the startup directories are correct in the scheduled task.

I meant to add that I have the following item in my security event log every 15 minutes, which is how often the scheduled task is set to run:

The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this machine.

Load the "Local Security Policy" on the local machine (type gpedit.msc at the run prompt).

Navigate to:

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment

Add the user to the following Policies:
* Log on as a Batch Job
* Log on as a service

Reboot the machine and try running the task.
