Here's how to set up the Access ACS Automatic Upload.

 To set up Access ACS Automatic Upload
  1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Control Panel.
  2. Under Administrative Tools, select Task Scheduler.
  3. Under Actions (on the right), select Create Basic Task.
  4. Enter the name of the task (For example, Access ACS Schedule Upload), then click Next.
  5. Select the Trigger for the event and click Next.
  6. Select the date and time for the task to run, then click Next.
  7. Select Start a program for the task, then click Next.
  8. The Program/Script command should read C:\WINACS\awupdater.exe. (or, you can click Browse to select this). 
  9. At the Add arguments (optional) command, enter acsexport and click Next.
  10. Select Open the Properties dialog for this task when I click Finish (This lets you change the settings) and click Finish.
  11. In the Task Properties window, select Run whether user is logged on or not. Click OK
  12. If you use Windows Server 2008 R2, select Run with Highest Privileges. This lets the acsexport process upload data.
  13. Enter your Windows network Username and Password.
  14. Click OK

On the Settings tab, Stop the task if it runs for 72 hours and 0 minutes is selected by default.

Since Windows does not start one task if the previous one is already running, we recommend setting this option to 4 hours on any Windows install.
