WINCRON is a batch scheduler that uses script files, (i.e., doesn't require
a WINDOWS dialog). This can be used in DOS, win95, win98 and WINNT. I
don't remember the web location where I found this but I went to yahoo or
altavista and typed "scheduler" or something along those lines. I found a
dearth of schedulers for many platforms but ended up using WINCRON because
I could create the script file from within the application I developed and
launch the scheduled process from within the application as well.

I want to schedule SAS jobs to run overnight. My desktop/network
configuration is such that I am wondering if this is possible.
I am working on a client's local PC Win95 desktop. There is no SAS
software on the local PC. A SAS/NT icon sits on my desktop. When I use
this icon to fire up a SAS/NT session it is calling SAS V6 from the NT
network [Q:] drive.
I collected last week's post re the NT AT command [thanks Mad Doggy] but
don't believe I can execute this command from the Win95 environment via a
script. Farther, the AT command does not work at the Win95 DOS prompt.
One suggestion might be to get Win NT on the local PC. Absent this
possibility, any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
