Z-Cron is a Scheduler – Task Planner that enables you to carry out tasks on your PC automatically and time-controlled.
Z-Cron is a central control centre for scheduling and automation of software. Beside the launching of applications at defined points in time, Z-Cron also provides numerous tools which help to make the automatic and scheduled system administration much easier.
With Z-Cron scheduler you can start and/or quit programs (*.exe, *.com, *.bat) under Windows 98/2000/2003/XP/NT(SP6) time-triggered similar to the Unix Cron. A scheduler is one of the most powerful services on a computer system. You can use it to launch all kinds of programs at defined times automatically, for example file backup jobs with Z-DBackup during the night and no user has to be logged on for that.
Z-Cron can be loaded and started using the startup function. Status information can be sent using Microsoft messenger service or e-mail (per SMTP).
If you are using Windows NT 4.0, 2000, XP or Server 2003, Z-Cron scheduler can also be installed as a system service.
The program does not only start other applications but can also show popup windows with reminder text messages on the screen or shut down the system at a certain time. The embedded commands can be used easily by writing the command name into the input field in the job’s setup window.
