Windows 7: Scheduler help, program locks up every few days.

07 Jul 2014   #1

Win7 64 Home(HP Icore5 HP touchsmart) and Ultimate 64 desktop.
Scheduler help, program locks up every few days.

I have Windows media reorder 14(not to be confused with Windows sound recorder) set to hidden to win7 server. It comes on with the PC and every hour after that, also have it set to come on at every hour to ensure it comes on. Also tried setting it to go Monday through Friday but that did not seem to change anything.

I have the program itself set to record local internet radio from 5 to 8 my time.

I wish I could set windose scheduler to do just that run from 4 to 9 and have it off the rest of the time.

I can run the program fine it just alerts you to rerecording something new every hour on the hour which drove me crazy.

Is there an app that can turn off a program on a schedule?

You might find other scheduling software easier to handle than Task Scheduler. For example CronW. Usually these Linux utilities work in newer Windows releases if they were written for NT and XP, even if the code may be a bit dated.

Some alternatives are listed on this page:
