VisualCron is a powerful and handy task scheduler that allows you to program and automate complex tasks in a few simple steps. The user interface is intuitive but not so simple for beginners who will have to spend a while reading the help file in order to understand its multiple functions. On the contrary advanced users will take advantage of its multiple uses. In order to schedule any tasks the first thing to do is to create a job, which may include many tasks in one. The trigger runs the job and the program sends notifications when these tasks are done. As the utility has a client-server architecture, it allows to connect to remote computers and combine multiple tasks and events, specify time exceptions, and be notified via email, pop-up window, syslog, SQL query, sound and much more. Apart from simple tasks, you can also trigger complex tasks through system events like file changes, registry changes, event log entries, processes, services, and even custom WMI scripts.
The application is available in more than 30 languages and works with Windows XP/Vista.
