    I have created a task (using Image for Windows) to run a disk image to a network PC. When I try to "run on demand", the task starts and then ends within 10 seconds. When I go to event view I get an error "Task Scheduler was unable to create file".
    I have two other tasks (also using Image for Windows) that also use the network PC and they work every time.

    Settings (Win 7 HP) Task Schedule:
    Run whether user is logged in or not
    Run with highest privilege
    Allow task to run on demand

    Any ideas on how to correct?
    Thanks

    How is the "failing" task different from the others? How big is the disk image - more than 4Gb?

    The failing task is different in that it will not run. The size of this task is about 15 gig and the other tasks are as large, or larger (up to 30 gig each).
    To set up the task I click on "create a task" in Task Scheduler. I name it and set the schedule. In the Action tab, I "start a program" and add arguments.
    How I get the arguments is to get a batch file from starting Image for Windows and go thru all the steps up till the last item (which is to run). This last step has a button to "show command" which I save as a batch file. I then copy and paste this in the "add arguments" in Task Scheduler.
    I have 7 other tasks on my 2 PC's that have been done this way and they all work.

    I found the answer. I had set the target folder to be shared. What I had NOT done was to set the permissions to "allow anyone" access.
    It now works.
