Applicable Versions: Version 5 and Later

In some instance on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 the upgrade to Version 5 does install a registry entry.

To resolve a Registry Entry Key must be added.

Import from File

Save the following three lines to a file with an extension of ".reg" then double click on the file to add the key to the registry

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\Configuration]


Manually add using Regedit

  1. Open Regedit as administrator.
  2. Move to the following branch
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\Configuration
  3. Add a new DWORD (32 bit) Value, enter "EnableAt".
  4. Right-click and select Modify, enter 1 in the box "Value data"


The Server may require a reboot after this key is entered.
