    Hi All,

    I've used print mig with command line to schedule backups however while I
    can run it as a scheduled task with my own user account, as soon as I use
    another user account with the same rights (identical group memberships), it
    fails.

    From what i've investigated, this is because printmig will always run as a
    gui despite it being called in command line mode. As soon as I change the
    account back to the user who's logged on, the GUI pops up and it works fine.

    Is there a way to make it work as a scheduled task or another way I can
    schedule backups of queues on a daily basis? Clustering isn't a choice for us
    unfortunately.

    Code being run is as follows:
    dim dateshort
    dim objShell

    dateshort = DatePart("d",Date) & DatePart("m",Date) & datepart("y",date)

    set objShell=CreateObject("Wscript.shell")

    objShell.run("C:\Windows\printmig.exe -b d:\printmig\backup-" & dateshort &
    ".cab")

    Thanks,

    Kieran
