I now use an app that generates a 'work' file each time its run. The work file is always generated with the same treename. Now I run a new program that will process a set of the 'work' files... But only if I remember to save&rename each 'work' file before running the app.
So I am interested in a new program that runs continuously on Windows( 7&10) that checks for a new version of the work file (pauses/sleeps for 30 seconds, then checks ) . If this program finds a new work file, the program copies the file to a particular directory, and removes the work file from the app's directory.
I would have this program start up when Windows is started. This program would retrieve its parameters (treename of target work file and the save directory) from a 'INI' type file. The name of the INI file would be a command line argument or queried to the user.. All INI files are stored on one base directory This allows me to have 2 or more instances running at the same time.
Are there scripting languages that run on Windows? If not, my computers do currently have Python running.
