    Hello again

    I'm not able to create any new task at all in TS - I get as far as entering the general, trigger, action details etc. but when trying to click-out, I'm hit with this...

    EG when trying to create new task named 'Run Outlook':

    Capture.PNG

    ...and the task is not created at all.

    It doesn't matter whether I create a new folder or create the task in an existing one and it is happening for any exe/batch I select.

    TS service is (obviously) running and so are dependencies.

    This is a sole admin account on a Win7 64 bit retail install + Returnil.

    Is there anything I'm neglecting to check here?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Cudni

    The problem was persistent even with Returnil off at boot.

    I found NTFS / transaction resource manager errors in Event Viewer and so ran fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\ and now all is well.

    Wish I knew what all that was about...
