WinCron« for Windows

Quick Start Tutorial

WinCron is a task scheduling program ideal for virtually any type of unattended task management. A superset of UNIX Cron functionality, WinCron provides full scripting support for FTP, EMAIL (both SMTP and POP3), IMAGING, SENDKEYS, and STRING processing.
The integrated VBScript takes job creation to a new level.

  What is WinCron?

WinCron is Powerful task scheduler with fully integrated VBScript that can be run either as an application or as an NT/2000/XP System Service. When run as a system service, WinCron utilizes both Domain User accounts as well as the LocalSystem account. WinCron fully supports synchronous, asynchronous and detached (no console) mode program execution . WinCron supports a very flexible time specification format for 'triggers'. These triggers can be fully qualified date / time specifications, relative time (e.g. 10 min from now), recurring time, constrained time (time window for execution), etc. WinCron is a 32Bit, multi-threaded task scheduler that can run a virtually unlimited number of concurrent 'jobs'. These jobs can either be loaded through the UI, on the command line or from an AutoRun.tg file. Perfect for Web Administration.
