+ 0 Votes scheduled task?? sgt_shultz 7 years ago i wonder if you batch file is running at all when you are logged off. i think you need to make your script a 'process' to run that way. Easy way out might be to make it a scheduled task that runs every so often? + 0 Votes Auto Login eddieduce Updated - 7 years ago Thanks for your reply ugdata, I have already setup the login and password part. My script backs up network drive folders and backs them up to my DVD drive. Everything is controlled by one script. The backup part works fine. Only that the exe is not executing. I had the PC logged in and locked for this and other programs but I am actually turning away from this and am either running as service or scheduling which is my prefference for this script because there are also scheduled restarts for which runing under a locked account is not convenient. + 0 Votes EXE in batch file huoml 7 years ago I downloaded eject.exe (I do not remember from where). I created a batch file that contained only one command to eject the cd/dvd. I scheduled it to run as local administrator and logged off and when the command ran, it ejected the cd tray. I scheduled the same batch file to run as local user (no special priviledges) and the task would not run. I added the user to local administrators group and the task ran with success. hth -H + 0 Votes User must be logged on ugadata 7 years ago In order for your batch file to work a user of some sort will need to logged in. Rather than logging out of the PC, try locking the computer and see if that allows the batch file to run correctly.
