Please understand that every time you do crawl scheduling, you are modifying also various data on your server. Therefore, you need to check first the authorizations or certificates on the task folders of your indexer because there might be some modifications or updates happened beforehand.  

After that, make sure to grant modification permissions or rights to your wss_wpg group. To do this, add the wss_wpg account to the C:WindowsTasks folder on your Index server then grant permission. In some cases, you need to right click the Tasks folder then you will see the option “Sharing and Security.”

Check also the event logs and diagnostic logs for possible errors and then you may proceed directly to creating scheduling crawl.

I hope the above information help you to solve the concern. Good luck!

The error code “0x80070005” is also known as “Access Denied”. The error normally happens if you don’t have file or registry permission to install the update. This can happen if you are using a standard, non-administrator account. To fix the problem, download the SubInACL Tool and install it. Once installed, start Notepad then copy and paste the following:

@echo off


echo Determine whether we are on an 32 or 64 bit machine

if “%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%”==”x86” if “%PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432%”==”” goto x86

set ProgramFilesPath=%ProgramFiles(x86)%

goto startResetting


set ProgramFilesPath=%ProgramFiles%



if exist “%ProgramFilesPath%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\subinacl.exe” goto filesExist

echo ***ERROR*** – Could not find file %ProgramFilesPath%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\subinacl.exe. Double-check that SubInAcl is correctly installed and re-run this script.
goto END


pushd “%ProgramFilesPath%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools”

subinacl.exe /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl.exe /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl.exe /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl.exe /subdirectories %windir% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f

echo Press any key to exit . . .
pause >NUL




Save the file as “reset.cmd” then open Windows Explorer and right-click the file and select “Run as administrator”. Wait until the process is complete then restart what you are doing.
