I need some help using Visual basic 6.0 to read the computer's clock and use it to execute a command at a specific time of day. I am using the computers parallel port and visual basic to control a stepper motor and I need the motor to turn on at specific times of day. The program will run all the time and say for example 3 o'clock hits, visual basic will execute a command and turn on the motor. I am having some trouble finding information for this, as I am a pretty novice visual basic user. Anyone have any information and/or links for me? Thanks!
