Run scheduled tasks when no user is logged on into the system

To set up Advanced Task Scheduler to run tasks in background when no user is logged on into the system:

  1. Create your task on the “All Users” tab.
  2. Select the “Run task on the hidden desktop” option on the “User Account Options” tab of the Task Properties window.
  3. Select the “Start task under the following account” option and choose the “Service account” on the “User Account Options” tab of the Task Properties window.

Network access

Please note that if your task runs on All Users tab and uses a network drive, you may get Access Denied or similar error. In that case you need to change user account for Advanced Task Scheduler Service from LocalSystem to an administrator account. To change service account go to Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services, double click Advanced Task Scheduler Service and specify user account on the Log On tab of the Service Properties window.

User input

Please make sure that your task does not require user’s input. As the task is executed on the hidden desktop, no user will be able to communicate with it.

Active user

Hidden task will start on the hidden desktop transparently for all logged on users. So the task will start always on the hidden desktop no matter what user is logged on and working on the system. The “User accounts (All users only)” options on the “User Account Options” tab of the Task Properties window are ignored.

.:Testimonials

I had the pleasure of purchasing Advanced Task Scheduler, an incredibly versatile, advanced windows task scheduler. This program has taken the Windows Task Scheduler to a new level. The customer service is superb. I needed a specific modification to the program, and they accommodated it by sending me a patch. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
