I'e inherited an asp website at work which has a web page called batch_send.asp which when opened in a browser will send a report email to the client.
The client and I used to get the email every week as a scheduled task had been set up on our server to call an exe which called the web page and therefore sent the email. However the folder in which the exe lived has been deleted and there is no backup so I need to cfreate a replacement.
I use ASP.NET, C# and VS2008 on a day to day basis for web development, but have never done any Windows Forms programming. I'm guessing an exe would be very simple to create but I haven't a clue where to start.
Could anybody advise me the best way to create an exe to call a web page please?
Or failing that suggest an alternative to creating a scheduled job that would enable the same end result?
Many thanks in hopeful anticipation.
