When I need to build that kind of application, I always create a Windows form application that can process some tasks and close itself when done. This application is then triggered by a task in the Tasks Scheduler of Windows.

You can create a schedule task for the same. If its an exe file you can directly set the scheduler in Windows.
If it a web application (URL) then you need to write 4 lines VB script & then create schedule to execute this script(which run that URL / Page...e.g. http://www.xxxxx.xxx/schedule/once-a-day.aspx).

Create a Setup from your application.

Install it in the system.

Use "Task Scheduler" tool in your machine to Start the program. You can also pass the parameters while scheduling.
