    Two accounts on a windows XP box


    Hi,
    I got two accounts on a windows XP box.
    When on the Admin accounts I scheduled a job to run a script, it copies files from the box to a network, all works.
    When on a second, user account, it doesn’t.
    Are there any settings I can change on the account for my script to work?
    Thanks, testerV

    You probably need to configure your scheduled task to run even when the user is not logged on. When you do this you get to tell the task scheduler what user account should be used to run the task.
