If you are coding a program to run on your computer, look at making a windows service which can be called at set times.

[MS WINDOWS]
If this is a console app or other app that runs unassisted, you can use the windows scheduler.
This can be done from the command-line with the "at" command.

Examine this:

at 05:05 /every:M,T,W,Th,F,S,Su c:\bin\ImportTrunkPlanData\ImportTrunkPlanData.exe

Means at 5:05 every day, run the executable.

If it requires parameters, you will need to put it in a batch file and call the batch file from "at".
