    Task scheduler

    I have created a task that will run once every night 01:00 on my Windows machine.
    It worked OK before upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.
    Now it doesn't.
    When I try to run it manually from Task Scheduler following error occurs:

    Task Scheduler service is not available. Task Scheduler will attempt to reconnect to it.

    What is wrong - my system is updated with all updates.

    Hi, please check the state of the service, which you've not confirmed:

    What is the task?

    Have you tried researching the error message?

    Error: "Task Scheduler service is not available."
    - a couple of solutions for different cases. Yours may be different of course.

    Thanks for your answer.
    I checked the link you gave and in my case it was also caused by having a network condition for a network that no longer existed.
