Hi Experts,

            I am planning on having a Windows Scheduled Task execute a Console Application.  The application needs to be able to access certain mapped drives that only specific users have Read/Write access to.  How can I make sure that when the Windows Scheduler runs the executable, the executable is run under the correct user credentials?  Or am I going about this all wrong in the first place?

Environment: Server 2008 R2, .NET FW v4.5, C#

Thanks,

Kosher

ok, under the scheduled task, you should be able to choose run as user and input the credentials of a user that has the permissions you need. I would also check Run whether user is logged in or not, and highest privileges.
