I'm trying to set a task to run on the last day of the month. However when I do, I get a rather bizarre error (attached). This is when setting the task on a Windows Server 2008 system. I tried to search on Google to see why this may be but found no results (www.google.co.uk/#q=The+Last+day+of+the+month+option+is+supported+only+on). Anyone else had this error? Any workarounds to get this task to run on the last day of the month?

Create the task using the schtasks command with the /mo LASTDAY option:
