I have a follow-up question to this.

I have a task folder RPA with two tasks as follows:

enter image description here

I created these two tasks myself using the Task Scheduler UI (as in above image). My trouble is I am now unable to see SPSBatch using SchTasks.exe:

I am user BEETHOVEN\kingk and have the same Full access rights to both tasks in the \Windows\System32\Tasks\RPA folder:

Besides file permissions on the files in the Tasks folder, what else is controlling access to tasks?


The security descriptor is stored in the registry, similar to what is done for services.

Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\RPA
Value: SD

Probably also a value for each task.

  • Yes, there's a SD value each for a folder and task. Is there any UI to view and update this? How is the default determined or set? – Old Geezer Mar 6 at 16:39
  • There is no UI. – Greg Askew Mar 6 at 17:03
