What's that lurking in my system tray?


Why, it's DvdpScheduler!


It's the tool that ensures that I keep everything updated on a regular schedule.
You can try it too! I think you'll like it.

Get version 1.0.0 here.

I just realized that there is a small problem.

Events are supposed to be saved when the program exits, but that doesn't happen when the program is closed by Windows closing. That will be fixed. Until then, if you make any additions or changes, you might want to close and restart the program to be on the safe side.

You never know when Microsoft might decide to send out an update that reboots your PC ...

Version 1.0.1:
- Changed so events are saved whenever they are created/edited/deleted.

There's really no reason to poke at the file with the saved events, but just in case your curious as to where it is stored, it is in
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Gunnar Syrén\DvdpScheduler

Version 1.1.0:

I realized that it would be useful to be able to reorder tasks within an event, so I have implemented that.
See the help file.

After using DvdpScheduler for a while (quite successfully) I have started to wonder if it really is necessary to have "Start DVD Profiler" as a task. It would be just as easy to do this by default, e.g. check if Profiler is running, and start it if it is not.

The only reason to keep things as they are is if one would, for some reason, want to not start Profiler if it is not running, and thus also skip the other task(s) in that event.

Personally I can't think of such a reason, but I would be interested to know if anybody else can.

DvdpScheduler 2.0 is here!

Here is what has changed:
- "Export" added as a task type, so you don't have to rely on an existing command file to run an export to XML.
- "Start Profiler" has been removed. This is now done automatically if Profiler is not running.
- The task for running executables (.exe files) now allows command line arguments to be specified.
- The log file messages have been improved to show which command files or executable files that were run.
- The help file has been updated with important changes highlighted in yellow.

If you are upgrading from version 1 and you already have an export task that uses your own command file, that will of course still work. The only real difference is that when running an export through the new Export task, DvdpScheduler can keep track of the progress and make sure that no other task starts before the export is completed.

If you currently have a "Start Profiler" task, you will still see it when you start version 2 the first time, but it will be removed on subsequent runs.

Download version 2.0.0 here.
