Can't create a Scheduled Task

Post by zefrem7 »

Hello,

I'm having an issue creating a scheduled task. This is what's happening

1. Click on schedule and I get the prompt - "There is no schedule for the profile "Archive". Would you like to create one" - YES

2. Windows does not allow blank/empty passwords to be used with Task Scheduler. Would you like this restriction removed? - NO

3. Enter you Windows logon password for [user profile]. If you do not have a password simply press OK. - I ENTER MY PASSWORD

4. It says my password is incorrect (which it isn't) then when I cancel it says - "A scheduled task could not be created! The system could not find the path specified"

I'm at a loss here as I used to be able to create schedules no problem before I bought a new PC. I used Windows 10 64Bit on my previous PC as well as my new one so operation of the program should be the same but I can't get this to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!!
