I am trying to finish installation of em client pro 9 on a new PC.
I need to change the default backup time and select "wake computer to run this task”.
Using task scheduler, I make the changes then click OK.
I receive the following message: An error has occurred for task em client database backup (S-1-5-21-4231364517-2675252918-3667284444-1001) . Error message: One or more of the specified arguments are not valid.
As an experiment I tried double clicking the task, without making changes. After clicking OK I get the same error.
I tried the same test one the other 6 tasks in the library. All 6 allowed me to open the task, then click OK to close. No problems.
With the em client backup task, I cannot open, then close, with OK. I have to click cancel.
There is something wrong with this task. Task scheduler does not like it, and It prevents me from making any changes to this task.
The task itself seems to be fine. A database backup just completed on the default schedule.
I am also using em client on my laptop.
I opened task scheduler, double clicked, em client backup task, clicked OK, and it closed fine. I made edits to the task and it still closed fine.
On my desktop, I cannot even open and close the task without the error. This problem prevents me from editing the em client backup task.
My user account has admin privileges, but I tried logging in using a local admin account I set up. I can open and close other library tasks without issue. But the eM Client back task still has an error when clicking OK.
I opened a command line as administrator and ran sfc /scannow. No issues. Did not fix problem.
I checked “Actions” for any syntax errors. It looks good.
The added argument: “/dbbackup –backup –silence” exactly matches the Add Arguments on my laptop.
The task error continues.
