Task Scheduler a Replica of Windows Task Scheduler

Introduction

The Task Scheduler is a Windows service that schedules and automatically starts programs. There is plenty of room for improvement for the default Task Scheduler provided by the Microsoft's Windows. This is an initial step towards that.

I have uploaded only the source code required to help you understand in implementing the Scheduler, as I had some additional code included in the project and was not able to upload it.

Background

This article demonstrates a simple Task Scheduler. This Scheduler uses the library "A New Task Scheduler Class Library for .NET" by Dennis Austin. I would like to thank all people here who share their knowledge and come up with new concepts and also help other to make them understand. This project provides the UI for the library I have used and makes it easy to understand the library and in the implementation.

The Task Scheduler is very simple and easy to use. The working of the Task Scheduler is similar to the working of the Scheduler provided by Microsoft Window's Operating System. As I said, this is an initial step towards the improvement of the Microsoft Windows Operating System. I have included a small option to hide the Tasks scheduled from this Task Scheduler from the default window's scheduler and it can be viewed and modified by this Task Scheduler only.

I haven't included the complete code for the project, but you have the complete code for the implementation of the scheduler. You can get the code for the Task Scheduler Library here.

Points of Interest

Task Scheduler comes with a new option to hide the Tasks scheduled from this Task Scheduler from the default window's scheduler and it can be viewed and modified by this Task Scheduler only.
