  • Hello Mohamed,

    This is a permission issue, the result of this is you might event get this error when you try to schedule a task using Task scheduler.

    If you are the member of administrator group, Then run these three commands from a cmd prompt and root of your c: drive.

    cd\

    cacls c:\windows\tasks /T /E /P Administrators:F

    cacls c:\windows\tasks /T /E /P SYSTEM:F

    These commands will grant full permissions to the tasks folder for the user group Administrators and the user System.

    Hope this will Helpful, please reply back with your findings.
