Program Scheduler to start and end a program?

Discussion in 'Home Networking' started by Kevin Wooloff, Sep 5, 2006.

  1. Hello,

    I wonder if anyone has any ideas on this?

    I am looking for a program to schedule the start and end of programs in
    Windows XP. (I know there is a built in Scheduler, but I want an external
    application if possible). I want to be able to start a program at 11pm and
    have it run through until 6pm. Between 6pm and 11pm I want the program to
    be shut down totally. Does anyone know of a nice simple program that is
    light on resources that will do this for me?


    Thanks in advance.

    Kev

    Can you explain why you want an "external application"?
    Download PsKill:

    Then set up a pair of suitable scheduled tasks, one to start the program and
    one to run PsKill to kill it.
