Executing a VBS from a supporting task fails. The VBS can be run without any problem manually by the account that runs QlikView service.
The issue is not strictly within QlikView, but it's about granting rights to execute vbs in Windows, when the user is not logged in on the machine.
Add account running QV services to QlikView application component in Component Services configuration - This is to enable account to create objects when not logged in
- To do this go to Start -> Run -> type dcomcnfg and Enter
- In Component Services expand Component Services -> Computers -> My Computer -> DCOM Config -> Search for QlikView 7.0 Application
- Right click QlikView 7.0 Application -> go to Identity -> select This user and enter the service account credentials running Qlikview server -> click OK
