Strange behavour of a scheduled vb exe
Posted on 2009-12-21
I have created a VB6 exe to copy some set of files from one network location to the other. It also worked well when i ran it directly. But, the problem creeps up when i schedule the exe to run automatically. I have scheduled it to run at 5 AM in the morning.
When i check that exe every morning, it will be running from morning 5 am to the moment i click on it. When i click on that window it will get focus and then only it will continue its execution. Until i click on that app window, it will remain still on the desktop but, will not be executing.
I tried changing the system, tried with different operating systems (xp/2003) and even i have rewritten that application in vb.net too. But, nothing helped!
I still have that problem and i need to click on that application window every morning to make it to continue its execution.
If somebody has faced a similar kind of problem or if anybody has some solution for this issue please reply back to me...
