Hello, Im kinda new to scripting, Ive been looking for a list of codes for the program, but no avail. Anyways, How do I get a program to start another program after a pre-determined period of time?

Thanks for help!

Look up Run or RunWait, and Sleep in the help file.

Look at the Sleep() and Run() functions in the help file. I am curious though why you want sleep. Many new script writers might use this because they want it to happen after something else happens. Usually though there is a better way to determine if something else has happened, or another way to determine when a program should run.

Execute C:\Program Files\Folder\Example.exe

Execute C:\Program Files\Folder\Original script that started this.exe
