Get a Permission Error When Creating A New Scheduled Task
You tried to create a new Scheduled Task on Windows XP (may be other version of Windows) and you get a Permission Denied error even though you are logged in as the local administrator.
The Schedules are stored under C:\Windows\Tasks Unfortunately if you try to alter the permission on the specific folder you may not be able to.
In order to get around this, you can 'Mount a Network Drive" of the path \\[YourComptuerName]
Be sure that Tasks is the top level of the share.
Now you can right mouse click the mounted drive and you can change the permissions.
