  Disable UAC

  • On a Windows Vista, Windows 2008 or a Windows 7 client, Tasks that require administrator privileges will trigger a UAC prompt if enabled. Running Task Scheduler requires elevated permissions. If UAC is enabled, configure UAC to prompt for elevation and run the task as administrator. Or run MSCONFIG and disable UAC per the following steps:


  1. Launch MSCONFIG from Run menu
  2. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down to "Disable UAC". Click on that line.
  3. Press the Launch button. A CMD window will open. When the command is done, close the window.
  4. Close MSCONFIG. Reboot the computer for the changes to apply.


UAC can be re-enabled by selecting the “Enable UAC” line and then clicking on the Launch button
