This is very similar to the question asked here over at Stack Overflow:
The question and answer here works fine when trying to run a remote task on a Windows 7 machine FROM a Windows 7 machine, but when trying to run a remote task on a Windows XP machine from a Windows 7 machine only results in "Error: Access denied".
The syntax being used for a successful command on remote Windows 7 from a 7:
schtasks /run /s computername /tn "taskname"
When this is run to execute a schedule task on a remote Windows XP machine, the result is:
ERROR: Access is denied.
What can be done to fix this, or is there another way to run a remote scheduled task on an XP machine from Windows 7? I do have admin access to this remote workstation. There are switches available to enter a username and password to execute the task, but entering those hasn't worked either.
