at your own risk.

Create Task Wizard Steps
1. You must give the task a name. Be descriptive, like “Eaglesoft Start Database” or
“Eaglesoft Stop Database”. The Description box is optional. Click Next
2. Set the recurrence of the event. If you want the task to run every night, set the
recurrence for Daily. Click Next.
3. Adjust the start time for the event to a point after the office has closed for the day, but
before the automated backup is scheduled to run. If the task is to recur daily, leave the
recurrence set to 1. Click Next.
4. Leave the Action set to "Start a program". Click Next.
5. In the "Program/script" box, enter the proper path for the application that is to be run
from the list above, depending on the task. In the "Add arguments" box, enter the proper
argument (-stop or -start, if needed). Leave the "Start in" box blank. Click Next.
6. Tick the box for "Open the Properties dialog..." and click Finish
7. Set the radio button on the General tab to "Run whether user is logged on or not"
8. Tick the box for "Run with highest privileges"
9. Click Ok. Provide the login credentials for a high level user account (e.g., Administrator
or an administrator-level account) and click OK.
10. If you need to create another scheduled task, follow steps 1-9 again. Otherwise, close
the Task Scheduler.
Automated Client Disconnection
Once the scheduled tasks have been created, you will also need to configure the Eaglesoft
database engine to automatically disconnect all users when shutting down. If you do not do this
then the database will not stop and will prompt the user to disconnect the active clients if clients
remain connected to the system.
1. Click Start | Programs | Eaglesoft | Technical Reference
2. Click Database Setup
3. Tick the box for "Disconnect active clients when shutting down the server"
4. Click OK, then Yes to accept the changes.
