I have a function written in VB which creates files and ftp to a server. This is part of
a dll. How can I make this run everyday at a particular on a Windows SErver. I know I can use taskschedular and make it schedule at a particular time.  How can I do this ? Should  I  make this a
service or an exe file ?
