Cron lite

Recommended Posts



I want to create a crontab in autoit, to refresh a webpage every seconds, and the crontab have to launch himself each time the computer is switched on.

So, I wrote:

#include <IE.au3>
#include <File.au3>
if RegRead( "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" ,"bot_cron") <> @ScriptDir & "\cron.exe" then
    RegWrite ( "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" ,"bot_cron", "REG_SZ", @ScriptDir & "\cron.exe" )
$url= _IECreate ("<My WebPage>",0,0)
while 1
    _IELoadWait ($url)
    _IEAction($url, "refresh")

It perfectly works, but there is still a bit problem.

When it's compiled, every second, i can see the windows's hourglass near my mouse.

So, i wanted to know if it was possible to avoid this hourglass, by reducing the code source, or other.

Thank you very much, and please excuse my English, I am French
