Can I automatically launch a script on a specific date or time?

If you are under Windows XP or 2003, use the Scheduler included in WinTask full version (the Scheduler is not included in WinTask Lite). Under Windows 7 64 bit/Windows 8 64 bit/Windows 2008 64 bit, use the Scheduler included in WinTask x64.

As a software developer, can I create scripts to automate my software package?

Yes, you can simulate the use of your software in an intelligent way: selection in menus, batch files, fast key input, and much more. When distributing the installation script, you distribute too the WinTask files needed for script execution (without installing on each PC). Please inquire about the special WinTask runtime license for automatic software installation.

Can I use WinTask to automate the management of my PCs?

Yes, WinTask copies files, displays messages to users, analyzes the presence or the launch of an application, and checks its version. It detects the hour system, the dates of a file or a directory, follows the actions carried out by the users, and acts accordingly.
