The task XML contains a value which is incorrectly formatted or out of range Quick "Fix" for incorrectly formatted or out of range data in task XML


sharing a quick fix as I couldn't find easily information on how to get rid of this error. This also prevents from adding/deleting new tasks to the system. In my case it was a orphaned task so it was easy to get rid of this failure

You can check "C:\Windows\System32\Tasks" and get the above XML. as mine was orphaned I went ahead and removed the XML (=task) file from this folder and I could again access "Task Scheduler" MMC or via Powershell
