Hello brainy,

I got a wired error message when I try to create a task in Vista Task Scheduler. I am not an in depth knowledge person having hard time with this error. I think this might be the permission problem, do I need to configure anything before creating a task. I am totally blank, please help.

An error has occurred for task MYTASK. Error message: The following error was reported: A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated..

Remember, when using Task Scheduler in Microsoft Windows Vista you should be logged on as administrator. If you are using a limited account, you can’t create a task and schedule it to run using Task Scheduler instead you can only change the settings that is for your user account. To start it up, click Start, Control Panel, System and Security, Administrative Tools, and then double-click Task Scheduler.

Go to Action and then select Create Basic Task. Next, enter or specify a name for the task as well as any description if you like then click Next. After that, do one of the following tasks:

  • If you want to schedule your task according to calendar, select Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or “One time” then click Next. Indicate the schedule you want to apply and click Next.
  • If you want your task to be scheduled according to common recurring events, select either “When the computer starts” or “When I log on” and then click Next.
  • If you want to schedule your task according to a particular event, click “When a specific event is logged” then click Next. Indicate the event log as well as other details using the dropdown list and then click Next.

If you want to schedule an application to start automatically, select “Start a program” then click Next. Click Browse to find and select the program and click Next after that. Click Finish to finalize the task.
