I have written a simple .NET Core console app (which writes some log files, hits a database and sends some emails). Triggering the task by double-clicking on the .exe within Windows works fine.
However when attempting to trigger the task through Task Scheduler it immediately fails with the code
0xC0000005. This failure happens when actually triggered on it's schedule or by right-clicking the task within the Task Scheduler app and clicking 'Run'. The first thing the app attempts to do is write something to a log file, which never happens.
The same server has a bunch of other .NET console apps (not .NET core) that are configured with exactly the same permissions and user accounts and they work fine.
In the event log there's a record that reads:
