I'm running v1.1.8 but the scheduled task comes up as Access Denied. How do I fix this so I don't have to manually update?

Thanks!

I'm assuming you are running on Win10 to get this error. This basically has to due with the active user permissions and the "user" of the task. Win10 has a bug in the task scheduler that I had to create the task for NETWORK_SERVICE, instead of the logged on authenticated user. If you run epg123 as administrator you will see the task and status.

Thanks Gary. So does that mean that even though it says access denied when running as user, that the task will still run if scheduled under administrator?

Right. The scheduled task will still run. You just won't be able to see the status in GUI unless running it as administrator.
