Is it possible to run the Task Scheduler as a non-admin? I have been tasked to prepare a machine to automatically run a "collect and send" from within the Xata program installed on that machine. What is Xata you ask? Xata collects all kinds of information from our drivers on the road, pickup times, drop-off times, what trips the driver will be making for the day, how fast he is going, how hard he brakes, when he ****s........I think you get the picture, you can find more info at www.xata.com
if you so please. Anyway back to the issue at hand, this is a rather simple command and it pulls the data from a "data station" that gets it's info from the drivers through a key system.
Like I said before, any user can sign on to this machine and run the "collect and send" the issue starts when I try to setup the task scheduler to run the program. The only time I can get this to work is if I sign on as an admim, create the task as an admin and run the task as an admin. What I do not understand is that inside the Task Scheduler it will ask you for a username and password of a user that you want the program to run under, yet if I logoff and log on as a non-admin and try to run the job under the Task Scheduler, it will say it is running but I know from the lack of data it has not.
The machine in question is loaded with XP Pro SP2. I hope this all makes sense to you, in a nutshell I just want to run the Task Scheduler as a non admin.
