I need to have a lot of jobs scheduled at various times (one job - mulitple times). Is it possible to programmaticaly schedule tasks in the scheduled tasks feature of Windows 2000. Doing it manually would be a really big pain.

Or is there any other way I could schedule tasks in Windows with a new app or something.

Any help would be highly appreciated!

Use a program to run a batch file usng the AT command, with paramters passed to the batch file.

instead of
at 12:00 echo hello

create  at1.bat
with

at  %1  %2  %3

and pass these programmatically.

I hope this helps !

Yes you can use the Scheduled Tasks found in Accessories - System Tools as well as the AT command. The link below will take you to an MS article on it.
