Windows 7: synchronizing time with w32tm.exe

08 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7
synchronizing time with w32tm.exe

I run the following script, %windir%\system32\mysync.bat, in my startup menu.
What I want to do is resync the clock everytime I start up my desktop computer.

REM mysync.bat
REM synchronizes the clock
%windir%\system32\sc.exe start w32time
%windir%\system32\w32tm.exe /resync

It doesn't work. Why?
If I make a shortcut to mysync.bat and click on it
it works if I run it as administrator, but not otherwise.
How can I make the above script run with administrative privileges?

Why don't you just use the Task Scheduler?
Its what its there for.

Task - Create to Run a Program at Startup and Log On

Or you could let Windows handle it like it already does. There is already a task in Task Scheduler that handles updating the time.
