When you try to complete a task under another user account, you may receive an error message similar to the following:
An error occurred while attempting to set task account information.
When you click the Details button, you receive the following error message details:
0x80070005 Access is denied. You do not have permission to perform the requested operation.


This behavior occurs because only members of the administrator group or users who have administrative rights can schedule a task to run under another user's account.


To work around this behavior, contact your network administrator to schedule a task for you, or log on as a user who has administrative credentials to schedule a task.
