OK I may have fixed it, can you please re-download it, make sure you have got your browser cache cleared so you get the current version and give it a try. It should work.

np, glad I finally got it to work, I was literally moving windows, compiling the program and upload at the fastest I could haha.

The problem was with the config file. atm there is still a problem but I'll be releasing a fix in the next 10 minutes.

So if you uninstall your current one and install the one online that'll be there in 10 mins everything should be fine.

OK all hiccups have been fixed I hope, still need more testers.
I've also released Portable Versions of the Shutdown Timer, so you can stick it on a USB or U3 Capable device.

we set it up simple parameters to restart as a practice run for shutdown and it just did nothing but sit there with the busy spin saying working , nothing more

the patience level of a 15yr old meant we went for option B after 2 tries in 10 mins so not exactly persevered, but i have to be honest it was far too complex , i love the simplicity of the gadget version
