    Hi Libbo1
    You might want to make a batchfile with this content:


    AT 12:30 /every:M,T,W,Th,F c:\at\TDS3\update.exe

    Place the file in your startupfolder and your updates will be automatic
    You have to adjust the filepath and according your location, the time (those items in bold)

    If memory serves, by default it only automatically updates (ie. launches update.exe) on Mondays and Fridays, but you can have update.exe launch at any hour of any day by using Windows Task Scheduler, or the command prompt's AT command as Dollefie demonstrated

    Think it's nice to tell HOW to create a batch file with that content?
