Configuring/Executing WinXP Tasks Without Admin Rights

0 pts.

I have desktop WinXP v5.1, SP 2. I have a user network account(and this is my designated PC) but no admin rights on this desktop. A designated primary administrator at my company has root access. Can I still configure and implement Windows tasks on this system without having admin rights? If so, what is procedure the administrator needs to follow to give me this privilege subset? I do not want full admin privileges on my PC- I only desire privilege for my user acct to possess ability to configure/schedule and run Windows tasks (.bat file execution) related to some of my app development work (Microsoft Access/VBA) on this desktop. Thank You

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,

If you are unable to configure the Windows Task Scheduler as a restricted user, have your local Administrator add your user account to the local ‘Power Users’ group on your XP computer. This should give your account enough permissions to run Task Scheduler without over doing your permission level.

Good luck!
