Adding a Scheduled Task

InstallShield 2015

Project: This information applies to the following project types:

Basic MSI
InstallScript MSI
Merge Module
MSI Database

Note: Each scheduled task must be associated with a component in your project. Therefore, before you can add a scheduled task, your project must have at least one component. If no components exist when you are adding a scheduled task, the Create a New Component dialog box is displayed, enabling you to create a component.

To add a scheduled task to your project:

1. In the View List under System Configuration, click Scheduled Tasks.
2. Right-click the Scheduled Tasks explorer and then click Add Scheduled Task. InstallShield adds a new task with a default name.
3. Enter a new name, or right-click it later and click Rename to give it a new name.

The name is not displayed at run time; it is an internal name that is used to differentiate between various scheduled tasks in your project.

4. In the right pane, configure the settings for the task. For details about each setting, see Scheduled Tasks Settings.
