WIndows Task Scheduler Permissions

I have a WinForms executable I am trying to run in a task scheduler on our server that I remote to
I have full Administrative Permissions
The form is designed to open... run a sub... and close
If I direct click on the exe it runs perfectly
But not in the scheduler
The executable runs... and stays open in the Task Manager... then closes after the "Stop after..." period.
Without performing the task it is designed to run

So... any ideas?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
