     A replacement scheduler tool for windows.. I recently noticed the scheduler is effectively broken in XP (SP2). You now require a logon to schedule a task, and applications scheduled as System with netapi or wmi, are no longer starting. So, I made my own scheduler! This runs with almost no overhead, can schedule multiple simultaneous tasks by hour/day/week/month. Can schedule recurring jobs, and is completely accessable from a command line. This should also run on all operating systems, (let me know..). Well, hope ya like it.. Comments/suggestions are welcome.. _________________________________________________ Updated - Consolidated code into one reusable class. Tightened it up in a few spots, and changed clock display format to 12 hour- AM/PM for clarity. _________________________________________________ Version 1.3 is up! Fixed a few problems, added a system tray menu. Skinned the app with Neo Lite. Enjoy.. Cheers, John

  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
