Running Macros from the Windows Task Scheduler

The newest release of QwikTouchPro includes a standalone command line utility called RunMacros.exe.

Run Macros.exe lets you run macros on local and remote QwikTouchPro hosts from a command line.

eg:  RunMacros.exe

(QME=QwikTouchPro Macro Event, or *.qme file) 

This example would display a Breakfast Menu on the QwikTouchPro host running on

You can combine this with the Windows Task Scheduler (or any scheduling software) to schedule QwikTouchPro Macros.

For example, if you had 2 QwikTouchPro displays - a Food Menu and a Drink Menu, you could show different menus at different times of day -

RunMacros.exe supports any QwikTouchPro Macro Export, so anything you can do from the Macro Editor can be done from the command line, scheduling software or 3rd party application.
