                                                   How can I avoid UAE prompts when launching from the QS Task Manager?

I have set the QS task manager to automatically run a downloader each day after the market closes. I want to run this downloader even when I am away from the computer and the QS application is not open.

One way to do this is to create a task in the Windows Task Scheduler to run QS at a set time each day (following the instructions from the avoid UAC post) and to also create a task in QS's Task Manager that runs the downloader a few minutes later. This works but is slightly cumbersome.

There is a check box within QS's Task Manager labeled: "Execute even if application is not loaded". This would potentially be a simpler way to do it and is less prone to failure. (One example of failure would be if I modify the downloader time but forget to update the Windows Task Scheduler time).
Is there a way to disable the UAC prompts when using this check box?

You should be able to run QuantShare (without UAC prompts) even if this field is checked.

Please recheck these:

You can also run a QuantShare script directly without QS task manager:

These links are useful, thanks, but how does it answer my question? When I use the internal QS Task Manager to schedule a QS task it *does* generate the UAC prompt if QS is not open. I tried it. Can the QS Task Manager be set to run a shortcut (which is UAC disabled) instead of QuantShare.exe?

Use the Windows Task Manager to run QuantShare and link to the shortcut to avoid UAC.

You can also create a task using QS task manager then update it using the Windows task manager.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
