Make sure you have installed a normal, validated version of Tasker (and don't uninstall it) before installing the beta.


always make a backup (Menu / Data / Backup) before installing a beta version.
only the Download To SD documentation is up-to-date for the beta
if you are totally new to Tasker, it's a bad idea to use a beta version, wait for the stable release
