I run a scheduled task in Windows Server 2008 R2. I used the technique described here to set its priority to high priority (level 1 of 7). My task runs a process (an EXE file) that creates child process during run-time (another EXE file).

My problem is that the child process gets normal priority only. I'd expect the child process to get high priority as well. I couldn't find out how to do it. Do you know about it?

Thank you


The reason why your child process launched as normal priority was answered in this post Process Priority Inheritance
