My Web app has the ability to generate reports

Now I want to schedule some reports,  I. E send at a certain time (configured by user)  every day

The usual way I know of is to write a console app and run it as a scheduled task

However I was doing that 10 years ago
Is there anything in. Net 4.5 or. Sql server that can automatically hit a Web service to generate the reports?

There is in-built functionality in reporting services. You can use report subscriptions. Here is a link for details:

Instead of creating a console application, you can achieve the same thing by creating a simple web page and a small vbs file. Here are step by step instructions:

1. Create a normal web page that will generate and send the reports. Write all the code in Page_Load as this page will not be used by a user, instead it will be called through code.

2. Create a vbs file to call this page. Use the complete url of the page in the vbs file.

3. Run the vbs file at a scheduled time using Windows Task Scheduler.

Here is a complete tutorial of creating vbs files to run a web page:
