The product scheduled task does not start and the following error occurs:

“The new task has been created but may not run because of an error: A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070520).”


The “Network access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication” policy does not allow to store passwords and credentials  in the product scheduled task.


Disable the “Network access: Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication” policy on the computer where this issue appears.

To disable the policy, please perform the following steps:

  1. Select Start -> Run and type rsop.msc.
  2. In the Resultant Set of Policy dialog, navigate to Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings ->Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options.
  3. Select the policy on the right and change the Source GPO accordingly.
