I got error in one of task like

"Error message: Task could not start because Logon failed.  Is the username and password correct?  (Code: 33046, API: 1326) Computer name:"I remember when we imported this task log on setting was run in background as specific user.and from that setting i modified it to run as current user,after that i changed my password yesterday and we got this error message.It looks like it was using my old password for this job.Do you know how to prevent it from running under specifc user.I know when I will be logged off some tasks  are getting failed ,so i need to log on stop automate service by killing processes in task administrator and start service again.Let me know if you can help us so we don't have to workaround like this each time.

Hi John,

Have you updated your password in the System --> Options --> Default User?

Note: If you setup the user within your task you will need to make the change in the Logon Properties of your tasks.
