[Freeware] Freebyte Task Scheduler

Posted In Utilities - By Techtiplib on Sunday, October 7th, 2012 With No Comments »

Freebyte Task Scheduler is a small and zero-install program which enables you to start other programs automatically, periodically and at pre-defined times. This program functions very well in combination with backup software like Freebyte Backup, disk fragmenters, virus scanners and other regularly scheduled functions. 

Features:

Options

Added: “Menu: Edit/Preferences”
Added: “Menu: Edit/Preferences/Confirm when exit program”. Freebyte Task Scheduler by default asks for confirmation when you close the program. You can disable it here.
Added: “Menu: Edit/Preferences/Confirm before executing task manually”. Here you can disable the confirmation dialog that appears when when you manually try to execute a task.

Settings

The settings file format has changed. It is still an .ini file, but not compatible with the settings file format of version 1.0.
Added: “Menu: File/Import/Tasks from version 1.x”, which you can use to import tasks from the old-style settings file (used in version 1.x).
Changed: the settings file, by default, is now located inside the Windows folder: “C:Documents and Settings<your username>Local SettingsApplication DataFreebyteFBTaskScheduler”.
The name of the settings file has been changed to “FBTaskScheduler2.ini”.

Log file

Changed: the default location of the log file is now inside “C:Documents and Settings<your username>Local SettingsApplication DataFreebyteFBTaskScheduler”.
Changed: the name of the log file has been changed to “FBTaskscheduler2.log”.
Changed: the log file will always be stored in the same location as the settings file (see also the section on portability, below).

Portability

If you want to run FBTaskScheduler directly off a USB stick (including settings file), then just copy the program’s executable, the settings file and the log file to a directory of your choice. 
When FBTaskScheduler detects the settings file inside its program directory, it will use that version (and it will not look for any data inside the “C:Documents and Settings…” directory). The program will also create or use the log file in the same location as where it found the settings file.
Tip: you can also create an empty FBTaskScheduler2.ini text file (inside the program’s directory). If it finds an empty settings file, it will also use that.

User-interface

Updated buttons for add, remove, edit and execute task.
The “Close” button has been removed.
