    Manual time program execution program or script.


    Hello,

    I'm looking for a command prompt script or other file to be able to manually enter a time to run a file.

    The idea I'm looking for is to execute the script or other file, enter a time into a pop-up prompt (i.e. 9:24) and have the computer execute the file at that time.

    I'm looking for this because I frequently run a script that checks Windows Update and then shuts down the computer.

    Idea; "Script.exe" opens a pop-up prompt to enter a time, then at the specified time, runs a program (or file), either by entering the name of the program (or file), or pointing the script to the location of the file in the script's variables.
    Is this possible?

    Hey guys, just checking if anybody knows anything about this. I'm looking for a program that can execute a file at a specified time without having to use Task Scheduler, since it takes longer to set up than it does to execute that way. The only thing I know of that might be able to do it is by Java code or something, but I'm not that knowledgeable in such things.
