VisualCron Review

Felix Cheng
An advanced task scheduler for Windows
A review of VisualCron by Felix Cheng

For those of you out there who have used the task scheduler for Linux called Cron, you might be pleased to find out that a similar program -- VisualCron -- has been developed for Windows.

VisualCron is a handy task scheduler and planner which is remarkably easy-to-use. Not only is the program well designed and pleasing to the eye, but their own web site contains tons of useful tips for people wanting to setup Cron for Windows.

The way VisualCron works is it will perform tasks at an exact set tie. That means that if you want Winamp to start up at 4:00am because you have to catch a flight, it can work as an alarm clock. Another useful way to use VisualCron is for scheduling anti-virus tasks or anything else you'd like to have run at a specific time.

In the end, VisualCron is useful to add, modify or delete any type of tasks and overall a rather useful utility.

VisualCron features and highlights:
  • Consists of 3 applications, a Server, a Client and a Tray Client
  • The server runs your tasks in the background as a service (no need to log in)
  • Unlimited number of Clients can connect to one Server
  • Unlimited number of Clients can be installed for one server license
  • Control the VisualCron Server remotely and secure through Internet
  • Easy jump between different servers from one Client
  • Cut and paste objects between Servers

VisualCron is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from scheduling software and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after 45 days). The VisualCron 8.3.6 demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.

This task scheduler software is filed under:
  • VisualCron Download
  • Major release: VisualCron 8.3
  • Free Software Download

Compatibility with this task scheduler software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version of VisualCron may be available from neteject.
