    Scheduling a program to open once per day (but not once per boot)


    Hello, does anyone have an idea to make it so a program executes once a day (but not once per boot)? I was thinking I could make the opener program in delphi and load that on startup, and it could do a check to see if it was already run that day, and if not it would execute the main program.

    You could also use the AT command to schedule a program. Bring up a command prompt window by going to Start-->Run and typing "cmd" and then type "help AT" for more on the AT command.
