I have a line in my script:

if ftpresult eq success begin
  # open MMDSBilling to run import process
  ftprunprogram "C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\OFFICE11\\MSACCESS.exe", "C:\\MMDSComm\\MMDSBilling";

If I run the script manually the Access program opens with above line.  However, when script runs from schedule the ftp download runs successfully but the Access program does not run when called.

I downloaded the new version and I see the changes included.  However, I still cannot get the MS Access program to open (see above script lines).  What settings should I be using in Creating a task and are the above script lines OK?  Note, the ftp download which precedes the above lines works OK.

What version of windows are you running this under?
It is possible that this could be related to UAC.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate and calling Microsoft Access 2003 Sp3 from your script (see above).  I have discovered that Interactive Services Detection is blocking Access from running.  Is there a solution for this? Thank you.

There is an applocker feature in windows 7 that controls program execution. There might be a way to configure this so that sysaxftp.exe (the program that executes the script) is granted access.
