I have a problem with running a .bat file in windows 2003. If I change the user to Admin, I can run it without any problem, but with SYSTEM as user, it will not run. The command is:

SCHTASKS /Create /SC Weekly /TN Import /TR "\"c:\path\to\prog.bat" /D Monday /ST 10:00 /F /RU SYSTEM

The .bat file opens Python.exe with a run file, and a configuration file, and the configuration file is placed in C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\.

Hope you can help.

What does "will not run"mean? What error msgs (if any)? – kreemoweet Jan 17 '12 at 2:45

Don't run it as System. System was never intended to be used as an user anyways.
