How do I get Windows 7 program elevation to work in Task Scheduler?
Posted on 2010-08-25
We have a network program that requires an admin account to run. We've used Task Scheduler to create a task with elevated credentials to run on a standard user account. We get the following error after we've entered the admin account information just as the task is about to be created:
"Task scheduler cannot create the task. The user account is unknown, the password is incorrect, or the user does not have permission to create this task."
We can create the task if we start Task Scheduler as an admin, but that doesn't work for the users as they get an "ERROR: Access is denied." message when executing the task.
The network program works fine if the PC is logged in as an admin account.
Other than terminating UAC, do we have any options?
