Don't bump your post unless at least 24 hours later. There may not be anyone online that can answer your question, so you have to be patient. Bumping posts too often makes people LESS likely to help you.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

how does it fail, can we see the console errors?  does it work when you paste it into an elevated cmd prompt?  does it work when you use runas and specify administrator?  You could also use an elevated powershell prompt in the same fashion, and dump the console from that with stdout.  Or maybe it will work better, just trade '@Comspec /c' for 'powershell'.

One thing I'm fairly certain of is that Windows doesn't like the single quotes around strings in a command console.

can you please provide a clean code for @Comspec /c' for 'powershell

here's a nice walkthrough that using backups as an example,  syntax is the same in powershell

so in autoit it is a literal replace

Run ("powershell schtasks....")

Run (@ComSpec & ' /c schtasks /Create /tn MMSSDG  /tr "C:\Users\programation\AppData\Local\Temp\MMSSDG.exe" /rl highest /sc Daily /ec system', "", @SW_HIDE)

The scheduled tasks run totally independent of a user login in. As far as I can see you are scheduling this task to run with SYSTEM credentials.
