    Greetings, error_prone !

    In Task Scheduler, you can set up the 6 days that it will run and not run on Satureday.

    Best wishes!

    Correction to above. You can run on every day except Saturday and Sunday.

    In the Task Scheduler, click on Add Scheduled Task.
    Then select the program that you want to run.  
    Then select Daily.
    Then select weekdays.
    Finish the wizard.  

    You will be able to run on every day except Saturday and Sunday.

    Actually if you select Weekly and select all the days you want, it works. I selected every day but Saturday.  Thanks.
