Scheduler Not Working

Post by tmilliken » Mon Nov 05, 2018 6:19 pm

Since upgrading to 7.4 Professional, the scheduler is not working. I tried to create a new schedule and used the administrator password. when I finished, I get the error: Could not create scheduled task. Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. I know I have the right password and the user is prefilled and correct. If I select only when user is logged on, I can see the task in the task scheduler and I am going to test to see if it works tonight. This is on Server 2008 R2. Any suggestions?

Please go to Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Task Scheduler.
Go to "Softland->Backup4all 7" folder and try to create a scheduled task there. Can you do that?
If not, please delete these folders and try again from Backup4all to create a new scheduled task.

I'm really disappointed in this release. Almost everything that I need to do is broken.
Can I use my 7.4 license key on 6.x? At least on 6.x the scheduler works.


P.S. Bumping the version of the product and charging customers to upgrade to a non-functional/less-capable product is immoral as least. Also, support by community forum is generally used by open-source projects. By paying $ one expects better support. Just my 2c.
