NT Scheduling

Question:
How do I schedule to run my Exe automatically?When I schedule it, the exe does not run.

Answer:
First, for Command Scheduler to work consistently, the Schedule service must be configured for Automatic startup in the Services option of Control Panel. And second, dump the raw AT command and use the WinAT.EXE (available in the NT Resource Kit).

The AT command is hard to use, easy to make a mistake on entry, and gives you no feedback. The WinAT program has a simple GUI element that not only allows you to make the many option selections, and after setting up the schedule, shows you the results. If the program is interactive (i.e., requires user input), then be sure to check the Interactive checkbox.
