Compiled Processes and Triggers/Schedules

If a Process has Triggers or a Schedule attached to it and is compiled, they will not be included in the generated executable file.

The reason for this is that, for a Trigger/Schedule to function properly, there must be an application constantly running to check when the condition specified by the Trigger/Schedule is met. In WinAutomation this application is the WinAutomation UserAgent.

However, a compiled Process is independent and totally detached from the WinAutomation Service.

This means that while the compiled Process is not running there is no possible way to check whether a condition is met and whether a Trigger/Schedule should fire or not.

In order to schedule a compiled executable from WinAutomation you can always make use of the Windows Task Scheduler.
