    Task Scheduler doesn't run program

    I'm running a task schedule to run a program at a certain time. It worked great in windows 7 but since I upgraded to 10 nothing happens when the task is run. I've run SFC and Dism see below and no problems found.
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>sfc /scannow

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.

    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.10586.0

    Image Version: 10.0.10586.0

    No component store corruption detected.
    The operation completed successfully.


    Here an XML file of the task scheduler
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
    <Task version="1.2" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/windows/2004/02/mit/task">
    <Principal id="Author">
    <Actions Context="Author">
    <Command>"C:\Program Files (x86)\TechSmith\Camtasia Studio 8\CamRecorder.exe"</Command>

    I'm noticing the error that the requested operation requires elevation. How do I fix that?
