Hi friends! In this post, we will talk about how you can resolve the error 0xE0434352 in Windows Task Scheduler.
About the 0xE0434352 Error
When you schedule a task in Windows Task Scheduler and you try to run it, under certain circumstances, you might get the the 0xE0434352 error/status in the “Last Run Result” column.
In order to find more information about the error, you will need to check the Windows Application Log in Event Viewer. The information you will find there, will help your further troubleshoot the issue.
In most of the times, these additional error details, will mainly point to access-related issues.
Indeed, in the the case we are examining, the error 0xE0434352 in Windows Task Scheduler, points to access-related issues or file-not-found issues.
So this can be for example, a missing file or folder, or insufficient folder/file permissions.
How to Resolve the 0xE0434352 Error
A common misconfiguration that causes the 0xE0434352 error in Windows Task Scheduler, is when you include as an action in your scheduled task, the execution of a script that references files without using their full paths.
In this case, when the script is executed, it won’t be able to find the files referenced within the script and this will result to the 0xE0434352 error/status. In addition to this, if you further troubleshoot in the Windows Application Log, you will get different file not found errors, as well as different access denied errors.
If what I describe above is the scenario you are troubleshooting, then there are two possible reasons that may cause your scheduled task to fail:
- You either haven’t used a full path for any files referenced in your scheduled task’s script, or,
- You haven’t used the “Start in (optional)” setting in the scheduled task’s action configuration
So, if you don’t want to change the script, the easiest thing to do for resolving the issue, is to enter the path that contains any files referenced by your scheduled script in the “Start in (optional)” setting of your scheduled task’s action (see below screenshot).
Hope this helps!
