I am trying to automate a scheduled task in Windows 2003 from the Task Scheduler, only problem is when I try to set the task to be automatically executed on a daily basis, I get the following error:

The new task could not be created.
The specific error is:
0x80070005: Access is denied.
Try using the Task page Browse button to locate the application.

The funny thing is I was able to find the application, it's just an executable that I created in Visual Basic, but I get this error after I try to automate through Scheduled Tasks.  What gives?  How do I fix this?  Thanks!
