If you use a specific program on a regular basis, you can use the Task Scheduler wizard to create a task that opens the program for you automatically according to the schedule you choose. For example, if you use a financial program on a certain day each month, you can schedule a task that opens the program automatically to avoid the risk of forgetting to open it yourself.


1. Open Task Scheduler by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Task Scheduler. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.


2. Click the Action menu, and then click Create Basic Task.


3. Type a name for the task and an optional description, and then click Next.


4. Select one of the following Task Triggers:

• To select a schedule based on the calendar, click Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or One time, click Next; specify the schedule you want to use, and then click Next.


• To select a schedule based on common recurring events, select When the computer starts or When I log on, and then click Next.


• To select a schedule based on specific events, select When a specific event is logged, click Next; specify the event log and other information using the drop-down lists, and then click Next.


5. To schedule a program to start automatically, click Start a program, and then click Next.


6. Paste the Generated Alchemex scheduler Command under “Programs/Script:” e.g. "C:\AlchemexXX\Alchemex OR BICore.exe"


7. The Second portion of Alchemex scheduler Command will be automatically pastel by Windows under “Add arguments (Option):” e.g. -RU4 -P{PARAM:Date}{/PARAM:Date}[_]01 September 2003[_]Date -INO_USER -E -J{TENANT_CODE=DEFAULT}{DBTYPE=3}{_publicLANGCODE=en}. Click OK.
