A scheduling service (a.k.a. task scheduler) is an important constituent of a system for the automatic execution of recurring tasks. Z-Cron is a scheduler which you can use to run jobs/tasks on your PC time-controlled with a schedule. Z-Cron is a central coordination point for the scheduling and automation of software. In addition to the time-controlled start of applications, the program contains numerous tools which help to ease the automatical and scheduled system administration.

Task scheduler - Taskplaner

With Z-Cron scheduler you can start and/or quit programs (*.exe, *.com, *.bat) under Windows time-triggered similar to the Unix Cron. A scheduler is one of the most powerful services on a computer system. You can use it to launch all kinds of programs at defined times automatically, for example for backup jobs with Z-DATdump during the night, and no user has to be logged on for that.

Z-Cron can be configured to automatically run at Windows startup. Status information can be sent using Microsoft messenger service or e-mail (per SMTP).

Z-Cron scheduler can also be installed as a system service on Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP or Windows Server 2012 (R2), SBS 2011, 2008 (R2) & 2003.
