How to run a backup task before Win 7 shuts down?

I tried the following without success:

Backup-Plan Scheduling
----------------------
- execution mode (Ausführungsmodus): At Windows Event log event
- Log name: System
- Event source (Quelle): USER32
- Event type (Ebene): Information
- Event ID: 1074

or

- Log name: System
- Event source (Quelle): Winlogon
- Event type (Ebene): Information
- Event ID: 7002

Both configurations lead to an execution of the backup task after Windows 7 starts again.
But I want Acronis to execute the backup task when I click the windows shut down button.

Does somebody has an idea?

There is a separate scheduling type 'at shutdown' but only in version 11.5 . On older versions it's not supported.

Fedor,

thanks for this statement. We will upgrade to version 11.5.

The options `Start on event' and `At system shut down' appear when I try to schedule a backup. However, it doesn't happen when I shut down. What might I be doing wrong? No pre- or post-commands are set.
