Hi,

this might be a very bad solution, but it should work. :)

#Include <Date.au3>

$runTime = "15.03.2006 00:43:30"

While 1
    Sleep (999)
    If _Now() = $runTime Then
        MsgBox(0,"", "That´s it")
    EndIf
WEnd

So long,

Mega


Scripts & functions Organize Includes Let Scite organize the include files

Yahtzee The game "Yahtzee" (Kniffel, DiceLion)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

on a server that may not be logged in for example

Something like this should get you started:

; Install a custom error handler
$oMyError = ObjEvent('AutoIt.Error', 'MyErrFunc')

; Name of the command, batch program, or binary file and command line
; parameters that the schedule service uses to invoke the job.
$a_Command = "C:\Windows\System32\defrag.exe C: -f"

; Universal Time Coordinate (UTC) time to run a job.
$a_StartTime = "143000"; Specifies 14.30 (2:30 P.M.) in format HHMMSS.
$b_StartTime = "********" & $a_StartTime & ".000000-" & _
        RegRead("HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation", _
        "ActiveTimeBias")

; If True, a scheduled job runs repeatedly on specific days.
$a_RunRepeatedly = True

; Used only when the RunRepeatedly parameter is True.
$a_DaysOfWeek = BitOR(1, 4, 16);This would run the task on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
; 1     Monday
; 2     Tuesday
; 4     Wednesday
; 8     Thursday
; 16    Friday
; 32    Saturday
; 64    Sunday

; Used only when the RunRepeatedly parameter is True.

$a_InteractWithDesktop = False

    ClipPut('COM Error: ' & $HexNumber & @CRLF & 'Description: ' & $oMyError.windescription)
    SetError(1); something to check for when this function returns
EndFunc  ;==>MyErrFunc

Edit: Script now pulls current time zone bias from the registry.

Edit: Made it easier to specify start time.

Just wanted to add that a scheduler sometimes should run as a service so the user does not have to be logged on.

I have used (using) xyntservice. The download-able zip did contain a binary when I first encountered it.

I have not tried it but there apparently is a GUI to it.

But then again you could use the task scheduler service, if it is running.
