This program will launch Windows programs or execute shell commands at a specific calendar date/time or at a specified day of the week. The program is designed to be simple to use and is perfect for launching your metrics programs each week or executing backup commands. Unlike the Windows task scheduler, M2 Launcher can execute shell commands. It has full online help and is free to download and use. Version 2.0 adds auto-restart upon program start. This allows the timer to maintain state after a server crash.
