I am writing an application that needs to read an excel file once an hour. The excel file is created by another piece of software and is written to a folder. My app has rights to this folder.
My app would read and process the file. I can do this if I initiate the action by opening the .aspx page but I need it to run every hour regardless if the page is hit or not. I am reading about windows services. I have no idea how to do this.
Is this the answer, create a windows service? If so could someone help me with how to do this, even where to do it? Is there another way?
Thanks for any help
