  • Did you read the boundary end date?? – Dave May 23 '17 at 14:58

You have set the EndBoundary date to the year 3000; that is not 30 days from now.

  • Yes. i did. without a expire date, I can’t checkbox "if the task is not scheduled to run again delete it after" What I want ? I want Task Scheduler stop running after X day and be delete it after X day. Thank you for helping me :) – Hello May 24 '17 at 7:00
  • Ah, sorry, I misunderstood the question. In this case, I personally would create a second job that deletes the first one with schtasks /delete <arg> and run it once when the job is done. – bjoster May 26 '17 at 21:15
  • Date of employment are diffrenet, i have to make Task Scheduler to delete himself after x days or runs. Maybe i should make a powershell to do that ? – Hello Jun 1 '17 at 9:50
  • Yes, the script (regardless if PowerShell, batch or whatever) can remove it's entry by itself. – bjoster Jun 6 '17 at 11:49
