Windows 7: Task Status is always empty

Task Status is always empty

I have several scheduled tasks that I am sure do run. If I look at the individual task it says "the operation completed succesfully" but the Task Status is always empty.

Should it not show all tasks that have been run through Task Scheduler?

Did you try using "Enable All Tasks History" in Task Scheduler?

Yes. No change. I'm sure I am missing something simple (I hope).

Also, if I run Task Scheduler with my Standard account I don't see anything listed in Task Status (like your screen print).

When I use my Admin account I can see data in Task Status...
