I have problem when running batch file from Windows 7 task scheduler,

I opened 2 windows of explorer, 1st explorer window: D:\Destination and 2nd explorer window: D:\Target. In D:\Target folder, there is a file will be copied automatically into D:\Destination folder. In D:\Destination folder, there is a batch file in which if the batch file is opened or double clicked then the file in D:\Target folder will be copied automatically into D:\Destination folder.

BUT... the batch file is not work good if the batch is run from Windows 7 task scheduler, when I added the batch file to Windows 7 task scheduler, and when I tried to run the batch file, the batch file failed to copy file in D:\Target folder into D:\Destination folder automatically :(. Why that?

As while, if I added the batch file to Windows XP Schedule Task, it worked like expected :D, but not like that in Windows 7 Task Scheduler :confused:.

Please help me... How the correct way to add batch file (like: automatic-copy batch file) to Windows 7 task sheduler so that when I try to run the batch file, file in D:\Target folder can be copied into D:\Destination folder automatically?

I have practiced it before, and uploaded the video on YouTube, its link below:

From what I can find searching your problem it is likely a permissions issue. XP did not have the security that W7 does, so your script has to run with an administrator user logon.

Also, when you create the task, make sure you specify the "start in" folder where your batch file is located.

On my respond this time, I want to say special thanks to someone at w7forums.com who used username: TrainableMan. A certain satisfaction for me my question was answered at an international forum like this.
Now I can run bat/batch file from Windows 7 Scheduler automatically, i thought the key is: logon with Administrator and when we create task, type batch file folder address / folder location at “Start in (optional):”
Brother TrainableMan added my name on his tutorial screen image, hehehe.... :D :D : )

When I saw answer from this forum, I practice it immediately.
The following youtube video link is my video when i practiced to run batch file (especially: automatic-copy.bat) from Windows 7 task scheduler:
