The program allows you to schedule various tasks. You can run
applications at certain times, execute files using Windows file
associations, copy / rename / delete files, etc. Task Scheduler has
built-in ZIP compression support too.
HiBase Task Scheduler is able to automate
simple tasks as well as complex multi-step operations. For automation
of simple tasks, the program offers an easy-to-use wizard. While you
can schedule most of the tasks with only a few mouse clicks, sometimes
you may need to define complex operations. Our Task Scheduler supports
Windows batch scripting. It keeps and executes Windows batch scripts
that allow you to control all aspects of your Windows system.
HiBase Task Scheduler provides you with several modes of
scheduling. You can combine calendar dates, days of month/week, times
of a day and number of executions per day.
Tasks are organized in tree form. Tasks can be chained
(next task starts upon the end of the previous), paralleled (several
tasks run simultaneously) or grouped.
The interface is clean and well thought out. The same
window is used for all operations. High stability and a low cost make
this application a leading solution in this class of software.
HiBase Task Scheduler does not require external drivers or
additional services for working. Supports Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/2003.
HiBase Task Scheduler is shareware - so, if you decide to keep
it, you have to register and pay the registration fee. Registered users
will receive all future versions and upgrades free, as wess as
virtually unlimited technical support.
