Create a Schedule to Run QTP at a Desired Time

Every Microsoft Windows has a wonderful feature of "Task Scheduler", which can be used for automatically running any application at any desired time, at desired frequency right from a specified date for initial launch. Once scheduling is done, it does not require any user intervention; however the only important thing to remember is that the PC must be kept on at the scheduled time.

This "Task Scheduler" utility is available in Windows "Control Panel" by the name "Scheduled Tasks". Detailed steps are described as under.
