Windows 7: Task Scheduler Import Error: 2,3

Task Scheduler Import Error: 2,3

I have been trying to figure out how to successfully export and import ALL of my PC's tasks.

I found this online:

1) Click "Start," "All Programs," "Accessories," then "Command Prompt."
2) Type "schtasks /Query /XML > AllTasks.xml" without quotes.
3) Press Enter. The XML for all tasks will be copied to a new file named AllTasks.xml. If the file already exists, it will be overwritten.

It seems to export fine and creates the xml file, but when I try to import it in to task scheduler, I get this:

"The format of the task is not valid. The following error was reported (2,3):Tasks:"

Please help me.

Those xml files are Unicode. If they've been damaged, get a byte editor and insert FF FE (2 bytes) into the beginning of the file.
