Setting Evolution™ Update to run as an automated task
Setting up Evolution Update to run automatically is pretty easy. The first thing you need to do is check some options in Evolution Update itself.
Launch Evolution Update but do not click Start. Instead, click Tools-> Options. On the Standard Options tab, make sure all three boxes are checked (Start Automatically, Close When Done, Display Newsletter When Done). This will make Evolution Update begin updating as soon as the icon is launched. Click Continue and then close Evolution Update.
Make sure to select a computer that is always on and ready to perform tasks.
To set up the automated task, you must use Windows Task Scheduler, which you can find on your Start Menu, under Accessories-> System Tools.
Open Task Scheduler and click on Create Basic Task, or Add Scheduled Task (depending on your version of Windows).
There are several steps to creating the task. Depending on your version of Windows, they may appear in a different order, but they are:
Name the task: name it whatever you wish.
Program to run: The program to run is Copycap.exe and you can find this in your CAPITAL folder. Just click the Browse button when you get to this step and find Copycap.exe in your CAPITAL folder.
When you wish to run the task: This is up to you whenever it makes sense for your office. Normally, you would pick Daily and a time when no one is certain to be in Evolution, probably late at night or early morning.
Username and password: This is the username and password under which you are logged in at your computer. Task Scheduler will probably detect the username but you will need to supply the password.
If you must type in a password when your computer starts in the morning, this is the password to enter. If the password is not entered correctly, the task will surely fail.
If Task Scheduler asks you what task you wish to have it perform, choose Start a Program - Copycap.exe.
If you have setup the task correctly, it will run at your specified time and when you come into your office in the morning, you will see our newsletter displayed on your screen.
If you do not see the newsletter or an open Internet Explorer window with the newsletter, then the task did not run.
Opening Task Scheduler, you will see the task in the list of scheduled tasks and you can check the status message to tell you why it did not run.
The most common reason why the task does not run is incorrect username or password. Also make sure user account control is off or the update may fail.
