0x800704DD error while running a task as a standard user RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,


             To get rid of the elevation prompt for running my application at startup as a standard user.I have created a task through task scheduler which will run my application with trigger as at logon( logon by any user i presume) and have checked Run only when an user is logged on in the Generals tab and also checked Run with highest privileges.


    when i log in as administrator the task runs perfectly fine but the problem comes when i log in as a standard user.

    i dont see the task running and when i check the status in the task scheduler it shows status as Ready but also says

    The operation being requested was not performed because the user has not logged on to the network.The specified service does not exist(0x800704DD)


    I have my application installed in C drive Program files , i cannot relocate my application. I need to run this application as a standard user without providing the admin password and also without moving it from Program file.


    please help.

    As you have seen, using these options in Task Scheduler does not override the requirement of being logged on with an Administrator account. These settings do not apply to a Standard User account.


    There are ways that you can do this. I would suggest that you post this message over on our 'Vista Developer Forums. Someone there will be able to help with this.
