Hi Sirdots,
----------

you need to pass in commandline parameters to startup the process you want to run in your application

you can find some sample code doing this here
http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb/browse_frm/thread/852de15947b340d4/d6280a830ce4cbb0

you need to have a function that is called on startup then read the args passed on that will be instructions to your program what to do next

when this works you can add the program to the windows scheduler and add the appropriate commandline arguments which is what i use a lot

"G:\Myfolder path here\MyProgram.exe" 1,1,0
