00 - 24

example:

Do
Sleep(500)
Until @HOUR = "08"

That will stop the script at 8AM.

Uh... you couldn't figure this out?

If @Hour = 12 And @Min = 20 Then ExitoÝ÷ ÙIåzË2¢éjy¢vx ÝvÛIbé¢vx Ûazqèº

Now what happens if you start that script at 12:19? It will sleep for 5 minutes, and next time it checks it will be 12:24 and it will not stop, it will wait until next 12:20.

Is there a syntax for date?

I'm working on throwing some rudimentary protection onto a CD that we've got to distribute to remote end-users (volume licensed), and I'd like to have a date-checker. I've been looking all over for the date check but am only seeing @Hour, @Min, etc.

Go to the help file and click the index tab. Type "time" (without quotes) and the first thing in the list is the time and date macros.
