How do I schedule the command line application?

The easiest way to schedule regular snapshots is to use the Windows Scheduled Tasks application available from the control panel.

  1. Open your control panel and choose Scheduled Tasks | Add Scheduled Task.
  2. Select BIDOC.exe as the application you want to run.
  3. Choose how often you want the task to run and start time.
  4. Enter the user name that the task will run as. Be careful if using windows authentication to connect to your SQL Server that this user has the required permission to connect to the SQL Server.
  5. Check 'Open advanced properties when finished'. Specify in the Run textbox the required parameters such as C:\Program Files\BI Documenter>BIDOC.exe "solution name" chm c:\tmp\outputname.chm
