You can write a special nnCron LITE plugin which will give you a START-APPW functionality (see 'nnCron LITE and Forth Programing Language' chapter in nnCron LITE docs). Here is a quick example. Create a file, called 'saw.spf' with the following contents (we are defining the new Forth word):

Code: Select all
: saw
    0 S" C:\WINNT\NOTEPAD.EXE" StartAppWait DROP
    S" xxx" MsgBox

Now, include the newly created plugin in cron.ini:

Code: Select all
INCLUDE saw.spf

Restart the nnCron LITE service and use the defined Forth-word 'saw' in your

Code: Select all
* * * * * !saw

You see the message popping out only after you close the notepad manually. HTH!
