I have a .CMD file for which I am trying to set up a schedule.

The file includes a command to copy some files to another server, so if I use
the AT command to set the schedule, the copy command fails due to lack of
permissions.

However, if I set the schedule in Scheduled Tasks, using an administrator
account, the whole .CMD file fails and the status shows "Could not start". What
am I doing wrong?

Thanks Dave.

Giving the administrator account the right to log on as a batch job seems to
have done the trick.
