    I've created a task which should run every 3rd of a month. The trigger is

  2. Task Scheduler: task gets triggered by event but does not start

    I know a thing or two about the Task Scheduer but so far I am unable to wrap my mind around your problem. Here is why:

    • I do not recognise the screen snapshot your posted. What is it?
    • What event is supposed to trigger the scheduled task?
    • What is the scheduled task supposed to run?
    • You write "there is the initial event 108 showing the event getting triggered". How can an event trigger another event?
    • Do time-triggered tasks work reliably?

    Scheduled task triggered at wrong time

    I've created a task to trigger every month on the second Wednesday. This month is Sept 2016. The task popped up on the 7th, which is the first Wednesday. The task should have occurred on the 14th.

    Can anyone confirm this? Thanks.

    Sorry if this get sent to the wrong topic forum. There doesn't seem to be a topic for windows built-in apps.

    Scheduled task triggered at wrong time

    Windows Task Scheduler does not trigger a task, after a PC-restart during the day

    Hi Jarius,



    Thank you for your reply.

    • On October 25, 2016, I checked the Windows Task Scheduler settings, according to your advice.
    • The next morning I powered-on my PC at 09:30 and made a screendump of the Task Scheduler at 10:08.

      At that time 2 of my 5 scheduled backup task were triggered conform schedule and the according backups were carried out correctly (see the green framed surfaces in the 10:08 window below)
    • I powered-off my PC at 10:12 and powered it on again at 15:45.


    Scheduled task triggered at wrong time ec2f4458-2467-4cd3-b485-49a57dde937b.jpg


    • At 15:50 I made a sreendump of the Task Scheduler window, where was indicated that 3 backup tasks were carried out correctly in the past at about 10:00 (see the green framed surfaces in the 15:50 window in the picture above).
    • At 16:40 I made a screendump again. Now the backup task that were triggered after the first power-on at about 10:00, now were not triggered anymore (the red framed surfaces in the 16:40 window) and the backup task that were not triggered during the first
      power-on, were now triggered correctly at about 16:00 (the green framed surfaces in the 16:40 window).
    • I also made screendumps again at 17:40 and 18:40. In both cases the backup tasks triggered during the first power-on at 9:30 were not triggered anymore and the backup tasks that were not triggered during the first power-on were correctly triggered with
      the scheduled 1 hour interval.


    My conclusion:

    • If my PC is powered-on before the first scheduled backup task, all backup job triggers are carried out conform schedule.
    • After a PC restart the previously triggered backup task are not triggered anymore during the rest of the day.
    • Only backup tasks that were not triggered before the PC restart, are triggered correctly after the PC restart.
    • A manual run of a backup task always result in a correct backup task trigger.


    This must be a bug in the Windows Task Scheduler.



    I hope you will find a solution for this problem.



    Best regards, Wim
