Scheduling LinkScan on Windows Systems

LinkScan is compatible with virtually any existing Windows scheduling utility.

  1. Using Notepad or a similar editor, simply edit the file linkscan.bat which is automatically installed in the LinkScan folder. This basic Windows BATCH file must set the current working directory to the LinkScan folder and execute LinkScan for each required Project.

    REM Set current working directory
    CD /D C:\LinkScan10\
    
    REM Execute LinkScan Phase 1
    call perl linkscan.pl  -project myproject -manual
    
    REM Execute LinkScan Phase 2
    call perl linkscan2.pl -project myproject
    
    REM Execute LinkScan/Dispatch (if required)
    call perl dispatch.pl -project myproject -options
    
    REM Execute command line reports (if required)
    REM Must set environnment variable for these
    call set linkscan=linkscan
    call perl linkscan.cgi -project myproject -options
    

    See the following for a summary of the available command line switches/options:

    Please note the following points:

  2. Finally, configure your Windows Scheduler to execute the file:

    C:\LinkScan10\linkscan.bat
    

    according to the required schedule. LinkScan is compatible with almost all Windows Schedulers -- for example, the one you use to scan your system for viruses. Windows 2000 users may wish to use the standard system scheduler which works rather well. See Control Panel | Scheduled Tasks.
