How can I execute a batch file using WINAT with Administrator Permissions?

A. From the Services Control Panel Applet (Start - Settings - Control Panel) double click Scheduler. Change the account/password to that of a user in the Administrative group. It may be wise to create a new account just for this use which would require the following attributes:

  • Non blank password
  • Non Expiring password
  • User Rights - Logon as service and Logon as batch job

After changing the Scheduler information you will need to stop and start the service.
