Application.OnTime in VB

In VBA you could use Application.OnTime.
How do i do this in VB, when i want something to happen on a certain time for example every morning at 06:00??
Is there any function for this to be done whitout using an timer control?

you better use the scheduler from Windows that will launch your app at 6.

I would like to see splitting points between emoreau and tppradeep18 since both provided valid solutions.

Personnaly, I would not use a VB app itself to wait for its time. I prefer having a scheduler, schedule the job, and free resources after the job is complete. Also, when schedule, the PC doesn't need to be logged.

But I don't have problem splitting points.

As you could see, my first comment goes in the same way of thinking like yours. I like the split stuff since both of you deserve the points.
