    Windows 10 Task Scheduler not finding Admin


    I've got 2 users on one machine. One "Standard" user and one "Administrator". They both log in fine. The Admin user has a password assigned, the Standard user does not. I am trying to run a program that requires elevated access on logon of the Standard user. So while logged into the Standard user account, I open Task Scheduler and set all the specifics, including the "Run with highest privileges" checkbox. Then I click OK, select the Admin user to run as, and enter the password. Task Scheduler always says that either the user is unknown (how it could be unknown, I don't know since I selected it from the dropdown) or the password is incorrect, which it definitely is not. Can anyone else confirm that this does or does not work on their machine? Is there a workaround? Maybe a different 3rd party task scheduler that is verified to work in this case?

    :)

    @Deepika ... did you have any further suggestions on this? I have found a workaround, but I am not happy to use it as I am now calling the exe through a "Runas" with the "/savecred" option. So this solution is not secure, but it does work.
