Hmm, given that you have your compiler in PATH, simply scheduling
'' to run at a certain time should be enough. Did you

Oh, this one is easy to deal with, at least on Win32 -- if you

Sysinternals' pskill from and place both

then the script will take care of things like this automatically.

I'm afraid a dialog box is a standard way of reporting this kind of
things on Win32.

Hope this helps, and have a nice vacation!
