Scheduled Task does not run

I have created a task with my admin account.
The task will only run when the admin user is logged in.
I even made the other user part of the admin

First I was trying to run a batch file, then I made it as simple as starting calculator.

Any help would be great.

Corey.

I think that by default, for some security reasons, incase the account your are trying to run a scheduled task under dont have a password, then the task will not run. You can try to tackle this, but its a much better idea and simpler to add a password to the account.

Even I agree that the scheduled tasks require that the account you are logged in as needs a password.

Re: Scheduled Task does not run

Thanks guys, but the answer to this problem is not that easy.
All the users have passwords.
They have the rights to run calculator.
I acutally put the user in the admin group.

The only way a scheduled task runs is if the user who created the task is logged in.

The error code for the task is 0x1 if that helps.

Corey.
