    Time Zone change causes error in Task Scheduler for every task


    My issue is kind of strange. I am an insider currently on Windows 10 build 10240. All the build I have tried so far has this same error in task scheduler when I change my time zone to my current location which is kathmandu (UTC+5:45). When i change the time zone to the aforementioned time zone and then check on Task Scheduler, when it loads the task library there are a lot of errors I have to click ok to make them go away. It says the task name and then goes on to say the task XML value is incorrectly formatted or out of range. It happens for every single task. so basically I have to click on ok for 8 to 10 times.
    The most weird part is that if i change the time zone to some other time zones eg., U.S pacific time, the error in task scheduler goes away and all is normal. I am also using windows 8.1 and this type of error has never occurred. It happens in windows 10 only for every build. Its strange googling it has given me nothing related to time zone issue. But it happens only when i change my time zone. I have tried to change time zones to few other zones as well. Some of the time zones give me this issue and some don't. I am pretty sure this time zone error related in task scheduler is new and requires further debugging. I have even sent feedback to microsoft ever since build 10030, but all to no avail. Any thoughts on this one?

    tell me which version you have and from where did you download?
    did you download the ESD file posted in Windows 10 ESD Database ?
    or did you download from microsoft updates?
    or did you download from Media creation tool?
    or did you download from torrent?
    or did you download MSDN?

    did you upgrade or make a fresh installation?

    which version you have?
    Home? Pro? Education? Enterprise?

    do you have 32bit or 64bit one?

    As I have mentioned I am an insider so I got the copy of build 10130 from Microsoft insider site. After that, all the other builds up to latest and final 10240 is updated directly from windows update. All the builds I have gotten so far has this very same problem.
    Anyway I have 64 bit windows 10 running final build of insider 10240. All the insider get activated pro version so mine is pro as well. I made fresh installation on another primary partition of build 10130 on a machine running 8.1. i still have that win 8.1 on that first primary which has been working fine without a single flaw.
    To sum it up:
    I have Win 10 build 10240 final pro 64 bit. got it as the authentic microsoft insider download and updated to every single build starting from 10130 to reach to this final 10240 through windows 10 update in the fast ring. Hope it clears the matter.

    The latest update on Aug. 17 has solved this problem. I have checked and double checked on many time zones, the bug is not there anymore. Thankfully MS guys finally saw the bug I guess.
