Need advice: installing timer, comms software with no admin rights
I have a difficult mission: I work for a company that needs to send client data to an FTP server on a daily basis, with no intervention by the user. Before Windows 7, it was an easy task as we just supplied some FTP software, script and some timer software that installed itself as a new service. It worked really well....
But now I'm in the situation where our clients are getting new PCs with Windows 7 loaded, and due to lack of admin rights/elevation, we're no longer able to install software. Worse still, I can't install the timer software as a service for the same reason, and Task Scheduler also needs Admin rights.
I have half a solution which means supplying comms software that can literally be copied into a folder, and my testing has gone well, but I'm stuck with the timer software. Does anyone know of a standalone timer app that I could simply unzip and copy to a folder along with my comms software?
Any info/ideas would be gratefully received!

It's not so much at my company - I can get Ops to give me temporary admin rights to test stuff, but I can't expect the same when I go to visit clients, or if I have to send them a CD in the mail: this is why I'm looking for a standalone solution (at least for the timer)..
