NiteApps automatically starts an application or executes a batch command file on your personal computer at the time and day you specify. NiteApps operates whether or not EXTRA! is running. Consequently, you can use NiteApps to start personal computer applications independent of your work on the host.
For NiteApps to run a program or batch command file, the NiteApps application must be loaded and in Run mode. To ensure that your scheduled programs run daily, you can create a Windows shortcut to NiteApps and then place this shortcut in your Windows Startup directory. This will cause the NiteApps program to load in the Run mode each time you start your personal computer.
