Monitor programs

The Z-Cron commands WATCH, WATCH-JOB and LASTRUN are intended to monitor programs on the local computer.


The WATCH checks if an instance of the specified EXE file is running. Otherwise, the program is started. It is possible to specify command line arguments for starting the program. (These parameters are ignored in the Freeware Version and can only be used in the Professional or Server Versions.)


The WATCH-JOB command enhances the WATCH command: another Z-Cron job is run after the program has been started.

Watch Programs

In combination with the STARTREMOTE command, these commands can also be executed on a remote computer in the local network. Z-Cron must be installed on both the target computer and the computer which issues the command.
