I originally tried using BITS to download a file off the internet but the command doesn't work running the batch file from within task scheduler.
So I figured I'd post this project
These are the requirements
1) While running the installation program, the program should ask how often the program should run to setup the task scheduler. Which includes what day and time it should run.
2) It should also ask the web location to download the file which it will run after downloading.
3) It will then install the program and setup the task scheduler.
4) This program will be running on Windows PC's (mostly Windows 10)
You would create the installation program that would install it, the installation would add the task scheduler task that would run the program you would create, then it would download a file (BAT) file from off the internet. Then it would run it.
Basically the installer would ask two questions before installing, 1) how often I want the task scheduler to run the program and 2) where the file is located on the internet (which is my web server). The file downloaded would change from client to client. The server http:// would probably stay the same but I want versatility being able to direct to any URL.
I would like to see a quick mock up of what you invision the installer to look like.
You'll need to create two programs that do the following.
The installer needs to collect the days of the week with bullets and a time field in which the program should start. The next field will ask for the URL in which to download the file. After it gets this information it will then store the URL in a file in the same directory. It will also insert a job in the Windows task scheduler in which to run the "main" program.
The main program does only three things, 1) gets the URL from the file the installer saved. then 2) download the file from that location on the internet and once downloaded, 3) runs that file.
I think the hardest part of creating the two files is making the installer correctly add the job in the task scheduler. If you know how to add jobs into the Windows task scheduler then you'lll be far ahead here.
Nice, detailed description, it won't be a problem to make. Installer can look however you wish and downloader (main program) will be simple console application. Please contact me if you have any question. Thanks for Plus
