See when 12 hours have passed since last run

I feel like this is really simple and I'm missing something, here what i have so far.

 

if FileExists("Time.ini") = 0 Then
    $FirstRun = 1
    IniWrite("Time.ini","Time","Time",TimerInit())
EndIf

while 1
    Sleep(1000)
    if $FirstRun = 1 or TimerDiff(IniRead("Time.ini","Time","Time",0)) > 43210000 Then ; 12 hours = 43210000ms
        ;~~ Script here
        IniWrite("Time.ini","Time","Time",TimerInit())
        Exit
    EndIf
WEnd

 

Works until i restart my pc and the handle dies

You're using TimerInit wrong, TimerInit only gives you a handle to use with TimerDiff and has nothing to do with time. You should be using something like _NowCalc() to get the date and time and then using something like _DateDiff with a negative value for the hours to find out if 12 hours has passed since you wrote the return value from _NowCalc to the ini file. The help file has an example script that uses both functions to show you how it's used.
