Can you please help me to solve the following issue :
I have scheduled a task to execute in specific intervals. When the user log
off, then scheduler is not executed. Is there any way to execute a scheduled
job even the user log off , but the PC is on. I have scheduled this job in
administrator user mode. This is in win XP prof .
Thanks in advance for the solution.

Scheduled Tasks|Advanced|View Log may provide some details. If the job
connects to another machine you may need to add the user/ group 'logon as
batch job' rights (server side). Control Panel|Admin Tools|Local Security
Policy\Local Policies\User Rights Assignments
"Log on as a batch job"

Remember that if it involves network resources to make sure the user account
has permissions to the resources and also use UNC paths as mapped drives
won't exist when no one is logged on.

You have likely setup the task to run under your account. Try setting it up
to run as "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" without the quotes (a reboot may be
necessary for it to take). This way it should run even if someone else is
logged into the computer.

That wouldn't make a difference.
