How to run a program with different rights than the logged in user by dm7941
Posted: 21 Nov 00

Activate the "schedule" service, set it to log on with the system account (and interact with the desktop, if needed) or log on to a different account such as an admin account on the domain.  Then from anywhere you can use the AT command with a machine name in this format

AT \\COMPUTERNAME  10:00a /every:M,T,W,Th,F,S,Su /interactive "\\server\share\dir\RUNFILE.BAT"

where "runfile.bat" represents any command you need to run.  I use a 2 batch file combination to send the AT command to each machine on my network when needed.
