Video · A video tutorial showcasing how to configure an automated Task in Windows that temporarily halts a service during backup or maintenance activities. The tutorial covers:

  • Stopping a service.
  • Running a custom script.
  • Sending an email with the attached script log.
  • Restarting the service.

Also, the video explains situations where another program does backups or maintenance at certain times. In these cases, Automation Workshop stops the service. This helps avoid problems with locked files or files that are not fully saved.

The intuitive interface with Task creation and configuration Wizards will lead you through the Task design process without requiring scripting skills or preliminary training. It is easy to automate anything and anywhere with this no-code automation platform.

Older Windows versions (such as Windows 8 and Server 2008) are not "officially" supported but should still work remarkably well. The underlying architecture of Windows is evolving and our apps are crafted to be backward and forward compatible.
