If you are the 1% of people that always wanted to run a program / batch file / autohotkey script when the contents of a file/script/text document/htm/css file changes, and you haven't found a program for it, then you might benefit of the program i've put together today: On Change Run Task.

OCRT is the smallest program that would still be useful for me that I could write using Visual Studio C# 2010 Express. (as it is my first one) I hope you find it useful. Thanks to kyrathaba for making the tutorials that finally got me started smiley)

Possible use cases:
* run your build batch file to compile and create a installation package whenever your auto hotkey script is updated. (reason why I made this)
* run a script to refresh your browser whenever your CSS changes.
* 1000 possible other obscure uses.

Future development will depend on my continued use and any interest from you. I managed to disable ClickOnce but it still requires .NET Framework 4 Client Profile, which you probably have already installed.

* OnChangeRunTask.zip (8.12 KB - downloaded 22 times.)

I'm not sure I'm doing it right. "Add Task" seems to add a file to watch, but then I can't load in anything for it to do. How does that work?

I re-installed the Framework but no effect. I'm on Win7.

Right click on the file and choose set action, you will be asked to browse to an executable. Sorry!

Oh there we go! That is kinda cute! Not sure what to do with it yet, but I'm good at Rube Goldberging stuff!
