Windows 7: Task Scheduler Cannot Connect to the remote computer.

12 Sep 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium
Task Scheduler Cannot Connect to the remote computer.

So, I have scoured the internet for the answer for my question, switched the scheduler from automatic to manual and back again, repaired files, merged new task schedule registry files into the old, cleared caches, rebooted many times, and nothing I have found so far has helped. Any suggestions besides giving up? Toss them at me, I'm game.

Thank you.

Are you connected to the remote machine as administrator?
Perhaps the remote machine needs to be running Remote Registry service. Or perhaps you need to try disabling UAC on remote machine.

Also see administrator - Remotely managing Scheduled Tasks on another computer: Access Denied - Super User
But also note for the last post:
It's worth noting that this fix is considered a "security risk", and is disabled alongside the administrative shares on Windows 8 and up
