Freeware Scheduler For Windows

nnCron LITE is a small, but full-featured scheduler that can start applications and open documents at a specified time or with specified frequency. nnCron LITE is a perfect freeware Windows clone of a well-known UNIX scheduler Cron (including all the useful Anacron features).
Here are the most important features of nnCron LITE:
- can be started as a system service or as a regular standalone application
- understands cron table format (Unix) and is managed with easy-to-edit text crontab files that are fully compatible with Unix crontabs
- handles and restart so called missed task
- set and use environment variables
- run applications authorized as currently logged user (WinNT/2000/XP)
- extendedable with plugins written in Forth language
- easily tuned up to answer your current needs
- not resource demanding, and it can run even on very older PCs without any noticeable performance degradation.
- not just a scheduler, but a full-blown automation manager.

Freeware: Win95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP
