Installed my SmartFTP application onto a new Windows 2008 Standard server and scheduled jobs are receiving "Access is denied" error?

I have a new server, Windows 2008 R2 Standard, and installed our SmartFTP software onto it so that my nightly download of various files will be run.  I've scheduled the job appropriately, but receive an error "Access is denied (0x80070005).  My SmartFTP jobs run just fine on my other server, which is a Windows 2003 server.  I'm wondering if the "Task Scheduler" on this new Windows 2008 server has different levels of permissions?  I've already checked with the technical support of our SmartFTP application and all settings are good.

Any ideas?  Thanks!

If you manually run the task scheduled in server 2008, does it run ? Open the task scheduler and right click on particular task and "Run". Does it run ?

If no, did you make sure you use Administrator account to run?
Please make sure it has right to run the batch job as stated in this article http://forcecarrier.wordpress.com/2011/01/24/scheduling-tasks-in-windows-2003-mysterious-0x80070005-access-is-denied-error/

Alternatively, you can use system account to run the batch job and try.(Got to properties of scheduled job. click change user or Group and type system and Ok.

Ok...I changed to use the "System" account and actually got further with the job; result was "Call was canceled by the message filter. (0x80010002).
Seems like I'm moving forward though...
