Installation and Deinstallation


ExecuteAt does not need any installlation. Just copy the executable file ExecuteAt.exe to a suitable path and place a shortcut into your favourite location.


A formal deinstallation is not required, just delete ExecuteAt.exe and any shortcut to the file. ExecuteAt has generated an .ini file or some entries in the registry, depending on the command line parameters described below. The .ini file may be deleted with any file manager, while the registry entries at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Michael Krämer Freeware\ExecuteAt may be removed with regedit. You can as well start ExecuteAt once with the command line parameters "-rc -rd -id" (see below). It won't hurt though, if the registry entries were not removed.

Command Line Parameters

ExecuteAt supports a few command line parameters. These parameters are specified behind the pathname of ExecuteAt in the "Target" field. That window opens when right-clicking on the ExecuteAt icon and selecting the properties page. The image below was generated with a German version of Windows, so the titles are different.

The following command line parameters are supported:

-rc: clear registry entries for this program

All registry entries of this program are deleted. That is useful when ExecuteAt is being deleted ("uninstalled") or if one wants to restart with a virgin version.

-rd: disable use of the registry for this program

The registry is not used. ExecuteAt will use the .ini file, unless -id is also specified.

-rr: read initialization values from registry

The initialisation is read from the registry

-rw: write initialization values back to registry

Modified values are written back to the registry

-if="string": specify ini filename

This parameter specifies the path and the filename of the ini-file. If it is not specified, but use of an ini-file is enabled, ExecuteAt.ini in the windows directory is used or created.

-id: disable use of ini file for this program

ExecuteAt does not use an ini-file. If -rd is also specified, ExecuteAt does not store any initialisation values.

-ir: read initialization values from ini file

The initialisation values are read from the ini-file.

-iw: write initialization values back to ini file

Modified values are written back to the ini-file.

NOTE: avoid using registry and ini-file at the same time with the following exception:

-rr -iw to export registry to ini-file and

-ir -rw to export ini-file to registry

-pp=n: set process priority for dialog (0:idle, 1:normal, 2:high, 3:realtime)

It is not useful to change the default priority of the dialog, therefore it is suggested not to use this parameter.

-pt=n: set priority for processing thread (0:idle, 1:lowest, 2:below normal, 3:normal, 4:above normal, 5:highest, 6:time critical)

This setting changes the priority of the thread, which does the work. Normally, this parameter should also not be changed. Some searches can take a long time, however. In such a case a low priority keeps the system agile as ExecuteAt runs in the background.
