Adding a Scheduled Task
Project: This information applies to the following project types:
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:
||In the View List under System Configuration, click Scheduled Tasks.
||Right-click the Scheduled Tasks explorer and then click Add Scheduled Task. InstallShield adds a new task with a default name.
||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.
||In the right pane, configure the settings for the task. For details about each setting, see Scheduled Tasks Settings.
