    Question Scheduled Tasks

    Hi to all!

    I have a Basic MSI installation and when I add the capability to create a Scheduled Tasks, at the end of the installation process on the target it always does a rollback???

    The Target and Working Directory is correct, the Only thing I can see that the documentation sucks, the "Run As" has to be the SYSTEM account (NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM).

    This cannot be a user and if I configure it manually in the target Tasks Scheduler UI directly it works fine.

    If I do configure as a domain\admin account it works fine "but" sets itself up as "Configure for: Windows Server 2003, XP and 2000" WHY??? This is a WIndows 7 system???
    Is that a bug in InstallShield?

    Any ideas would be great!

    Have you tried creating it with Powershell?

    I'm curious if you ever found out if this was a bug or not. I am seeing that no matter what I do, scheduled tasks are configured for Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, or Windows 2000. It feels like a bug to me and I don't even know how to change it so it gets installed properly. It requires a manual change which is not something we can do.
