Publisher's Description:

nnCron LITE - nnCron LITE is a small, but full-featured scheduler, that can start applications and open documents at specified time or with specified frequency. nnCron LITE is a perfect freeware Windows clone of a well-known UNIX scheduler Cron (including all the useful Anacron features).

Here are the most important nnCron LITE features:

- it can be started as a system service or as a regular standalone application,

- it understands cron table format (Unix) and is managed with easy-to-edit text crontab files that are fully compatible with Unix crontabs,

- it can handle and restart so called missed tasks,

- it can set and use environment variables,

- it can run applications authorized as currently logged user (WinNT/2000/XP),

- it can be extended with plugins written in Forth language,

- it can be easy tuned up to answer your current needs,

- it is not resource demanding and it can run even on very old PCs without any noticeable performance degradation. We have never seen nnCron LITE system service to allocate more than 150k of operative memory.

nnCron LITE is tiny, powerful and easy to use. And if you need not just a scheduler, but a full-blown automation manager - take a look at nnCron (

It's very good. Simple to use for unix users as I am.

nnCron worked great for me, having *nix experience I was able to setup and run jobs almost immediately. Great software, thank you.

Tried running it as a standalone application, but as far as I was able to tell, for some reason or other it did not run on machine. Perhaps one of my anti-(virus-and-everything-else) programs blocked it or something, I'm really not sure.

Pretty unobtrusive

Seems to work just like the original Unix namesake I'm familiar.
Replaced a commercial product with it.
It saved my bacon and a days worth of work rebuilding machine.
Nice little utility, thanks.

For the commands line impaired, a windows gui to build files might be a cool addon.

Implementation & Usage

We are using nnCron LITE in order to perform auto (Email) backups and a novel implementation of DDNS whereby we use nnCron LITE to periodically post users Dynamic IP addresses to our Server. Being very familiar with CRON operation in UNIX it fills a need in the MS XP environment. THANKS!! works so well we do not know it is there!!!!

Great (but could be a bit easier for newbies)

I'm at least a bit familiar with cron/crontab, but a little grapical utility which would allow people to use familiar elements (dropdowns, etc.) to generate a cut-and-paste line that can be placed in the crontab file (not necessarily a complete crontab manager application) would increase usability quite a bit.
