Could you spell out the steps you took, please? Would this work for the
scenario when users are not admins but restricted users, and therefore
would work and update wpkg xml files and install remove software 'even -
if' a user with admin rights never logged in to this workstation?
I guess I am showing that I haven't tried scheduled tasks and therefore
don't know what rights are effective for those things.


'Subject' related question, but not wpkg related, can scheduled tasks be
copied to file and updated or 'transported' to other machines by
copying/updating files?
