I have a task schedule in windows server 2012 R2 that triggers a batch file to generate a random password for an account in drupal and then apply that password with drush using the command "drush user:password user password". Everything runs fine if a user is logged in on windows but the drush command part fails if a user is not logged in. The password does generate but it does not get changed.

I have drush, composer and php on the system environment variable path and still won't work unless some user is logged in into windows.

Any idea of how i can make this work, the server goes down for maintenance regularly and it is a pain having to log in every time.
