How to get IBackgroundTaskInstance?

I need that in order to execute this but i think the question is more general - how does one get an

IBackgroundTaskInstance
when one is needed?

Answer

I think you are badly misunderstanding the purpose of the OnRun method. As the linked documentation states:

The system calls this method when the associated background task has been triggered.

It is a protected method that is provided as part of the infrastructure. As such, it is called automatically by infrastructure code, and you (the client) are only supposed to override it for handling purposes.

You basically never call OnRun yourself, thus you never need to provide any of its parameters. Rather, you are passed a reference to an object that implements IBackgroundTaskInstance when the function gets called, which you can use in your implementation of the method's body in a derived class.
