    Cannot run BAT file with Task Scheduler "Access Denied".


    Hi all.

    I am learning some basic batch scripting and I've created a file with the following code:

    Cannot run BAT file with Task Scheduler "Access Denied". [​IMG]


    All this does is move various file types to various folders to clean up my desktop.
    If I click on the .bat file directly it works great. But if I try to run it from task scheduler I get:


    Cannot run BAT file with Task Scheduler "Access Denied". [​IMG]


    Here are my settings:

    I tried using the "run weather user is logged on or not" and with/without "highest privileges". Im using my default account on my computer which is the administrator account.

    I am using Windows 10 Pro.

  2. How to run concurrent batch jobs in task scheduler

    Try copy pasting it please

    http://www.aanning.com/ajissues/Parallel_scheduled_tasks/ss1.jpg

    I had tried this. Make a bat file, which contains below :

    START CLEAR_PHOTOSBYDATE0.BAT

    START CLEAR_PHOTOSBYDATE1.BAT

    START CLEAR_PHOTOSBYDATE2.BAT

    Double click...runs great. Right click, run as administrator, and it can not find the files...it does this in Task Scheduler too. This tells me task scheduler runs as admin.

    My properties are as:

    How can I get through "Access is denied" errors in Command Prompt in Windows 10?

    Hi Nachappa C K.

    I was using Command Prompt under administrator, and when I was running a .bat file to install Microsoft Anna on Windows 10, it was giving me "Access is denied." quotes in the Command Prompt; even when I used the hidden Built-in Administrator. I've actually
    solved my problem now. I went to the folder my .bat file was trying to copy files to (C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SpeechEngines\Microsoft\TTS20), then I changed the owner from SYSTEM to my user account. After trying restlessly to give CREATOR OWNER
    privileges, I decided to Update and Restart. After the computer did so, I went to the .bat file and ran it under administrator again. It showed way less "Access is denied." quotes, then I checked to see if Microsoft Anna was working, and as it turned out,
    she did.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Cannot run BAT file with Task Scheduler "Access Denied".

    You should set the default directory before moving files. In your case:
    CD %USERPROFILE%\Desktop

    Look very closely at that screenshot. You'll see that when launched by Task Scheduler it is running in the folder C:\Windows\System32 and not in your Desktop as it is when you run it by clicking on it.

    Well I just solved it by adding a "start in" option and putting in the path and then I came here and you guys were right! Silly beginner mistake. I assumed that the .bat file would operate from the directory it lived in. Thanks!
     
  7. I place my batch files (along with other small utility programs that do not need installing) in C:\Utilities and then added that folder to the environment, path. Kind of helps me anyway.
