Monitor Windows Scheduled Tasks Last Run Result

I would like to set up some kind of alert that tells me when a task runs with a result and returns anything other than 0x0. Obviously if the scheduled task runs and the action returns an error code, the Task Scheduler still returns as successful so it's not possible to set up monitoring from the Event Viewer

My server is running Windows Server 2008 R2

How can I set up monitoring to check the Last Run Result?

Thanks in advance

I solved this issue with a PowerShell script. I found it here

http://serverfault.com/questions/436720/is-it-possible-for-a-powershell-script-to-return-the-last-run-result-from-window

$taskName = "ETL"
$result = (schtasks /query /FO LIST /V /TN $taskName | findstr "Result")
$result = $result.substring(12)
$lastResult = $result.trim()
