Windows 7: Task Scheduler Question

Task Scheduler Question

Is there any way to schedule a task to load a program once a particular program is loaded? And if possible, have that program close once the other program is closed?

Like, I want program B to run only if I open program A. Then when I close program A, program B closes also.

There probably is a way to do it but you would have to be an extremely competant programmer!

So to answer your question it isn't possible to go into the task scheduler and create the task your talking about, but I am 100% sure that you could write a program that would enable to create such a task.

I can have a program start once another program ends, by using a batch file.

For instance, let's say I create the file test.bat
the file contains two lines:

notepad.exe
calc.exe

when I start the bat file, notepad runs. when I close the notepad, the calculator program runs.

perhaps there's additional functionality you could do in the batch file, or maybe it could be done in a scheduler, but this is what i could come up with.

Thanks for the input. I've never even created a batch file so I wouldn't know where to start! Haha.

It's not crucial or anything. Just more of a luxury if I could possibly get it to happen. I just want program B to run when I open program A, and when I close program A, program B should close.

What are the names of the two programs?

Oops, I'm sorry. Forgot to check back on this thread. The two programs are cledx.exe and FL.exe.

cledx.exe would be program B and FL.exe would be program A.
