Toucan & Windows Task Scheduler

I would like to schedule Toucan to run via Windows Task Scheduler (Scheduled Tasks). It is easy enough to do this but how would I schedule it to run a certain saved job? Anyone know how this might be accomplished? Thanks,

jared

Parameters directly

I thought you could store and pass parameters in a scheduled task job?

Batch

I've setup the job names but do you create a batch? I can launch toucan as a scheduled task but how do you tell it to run a particular job?

Got it.

Ok, I got it figured out. I setup a simple batch file as suggested with the simple text "toucan jobname" in it and then scheduled that batch file to run.

Works great. Just wanted to post a follow up in case someone else is trying to do the same thing.

Toucan & Windows Task Scheduler

I know this is a (very) old thread, but current version of Toucan requires "-j jobname" to execute jobname from commandline, so something like:

schtasks /create /SC DAILY /TN back2drop /TR "Z:\PortableApps\Toucan\Toucan.exe -j PortableAppsConfigs2DropBox" /ST 15:30

is required to create a daily job at 3:30pm for job "PortableAppsConfigs2DropBox"
