I can run more than one copy of the timer simultaneously, to run different programs or the same program more than once, but are there likely to be any problems or conflicts if I do this?
I've set up my computer to switch itself on using the BIOS timer and switch itself off using a shutdown utility. Inbetween it runs various calculation, download and housekeeping tasks under timer control. I'd like to get RRunner to load from the startup group minimised to the system tray, ready to run it's program at some random time. However, RRunner doesn't seem to save the details of the time period and application.
Could the program be made to read a configuration file containg the time period and application path-name (ideally plain text) by using a switch after the program name. That way I could get RRunner to load and run completely automatically or get two instances of RRunner to run different programs at random times automatically.
Also if I set the program to run minimised it minimises to the task bar as well as the system tray. Could the program be set up to (optionally) run already minimised to the system tray?
I'll work that in soon, something like: RRunner /m -sh:12 -sm:30 -eh:13 -em:45 -ap:C:\Program Files\Azureus\Azureus.exe
Would: Start minimised, the start range would be 12:30 - 13:45 and the program, Azureus
Does leaving the programme running use up many system resources?
Minimal, It's Visual C++ .NET, it may appear to use chunks of memory, but, this is due to the way .NET handles memory
Glad you're happy with it so far
