FileNotFoundException when running on Windows Xp

I made an app that uses the Task Scheduler Managed Wrapper Library. When the app runs on Windows 7 or later, it works OK. But when it runs on Windows XP, it crashes on startup with a FileNotFoundException. I have no clue what causes this issue. Here is the stack trace. Any help? I need to make this app work in Windows XP.

2016-11-14 15:41:04,004 [1] FATAL - Hubo un error al ejecutar la aplicación
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: El sistema no puede hallar el archivo especificado. (Excepción de HRESULT: 0x80070002)

This error has occurred in the past when the name of the task conflicts with the V1 engine. What is the name of your task?

The name of the task is "Backups". I also tried with a different name but it didn´t work.

Edit: Never mind, I managed to find the issue. The app was checking if the task was already created. In Windows 7 the GetTask() function returned null if the task was not found but in Windows XP it throwed a FileNotFoundException instead.

Thank you for finding that inconsistency. I will adjust it so that it behaves the same for both.

It is now corrected and will appear in the next release.
