Hi Everyone, I have a question here. Lets say I have completed my script and already complied it into an icon on the desktop which i can run it everytime i doubleclick on that icon. My question is that how can i make this script run daily on a certain time (lets say its 5pm everyday) according to the computer's time ??.. I have seen the forum scripts but i dun seem to understand it at all.. really hope someone could help me write this little script to help me on this... thanks.. =) cheers..

Hi, if you want to actualy run the script every day it certain time, you can use the windows scheduler..

But if you want that this script will run some tasks in this time, maybe start from here:

$Time = "17:00:00"

While 1
    Sleep(5)
    $CurrentTime = @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC
    If $CurrentTime = $Time Or $CurrentTime+1 = $Time Or $CurrentTime-1 = $Time Then
        MsgBox(0, "", "Now we start to do somthing ;) ")
        ;;;;;;
    EndIf
WEnd

Put your script in first 1

But I am wondering, won't it run twice or more since 1 second have 1k million seoncds, and your sleep is only 5 million seconds, I think you should try Do....Until

Do

Nothing

Until $CurrentTime = $Time Or $CurrentTime+1 = $Time Or $CurrentTime-1 = $Time

Use this to prevent it from redoing the same thing more than once at the specific time:

Global $Time = "17:00:00"
;~ Global $Time = @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC + 2;used this for testing
Global $b_Initiated = False
While 1
    Sleep(500)
    $CurrentTime = @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC
    If $CurrentTime = $Time Or $CurrentTime+1 = $Time Or $CurrentTime-1 = $Time And $b_Initiated = False Then
        $b_Initiated = True
        ConsoleWrite("Doing it" &@LF)
        ;;;;;;
    EndIf
    If $b_Initiated = True And $CurrentTime <> $Time Then
        $b_Initiated = False
    EndIf
WEnd
