  • Hi, Rajendra,

    Could you please explain more about your requirement? What do you mean by "execute at specified time"? An simple example would help.

  • hi Congyu,

    in my project we running worflow through WorkflowApplication object,and calling "Run()" Method,

    my requirement is that to run a workflow at specified time like , 09/04/2010 at 5PM. i.e 9th April 5 PM

    In 3.5 we had Schedule Method  ,WorkflowSchedulerService. . :: . Schedule Method (WaitCallback, Guid, DateTime, Guid)


    if you can suggest me to achieve the same thing in wf4.0 it would be helpful for me.

  • Some ideas

    a) run it in sequence with a Delay activity set for the appropriate timeout
    b) hook up to the Windows task scheduler API:

  • Also check out the new Absolute Delay activity sample:



    This activity will delay until a certain datetime, rather than delaying for a given timespan.

  • A bunch of new samples rolled out out last week. I don't have a list of which ones are new, but if you browse through the TOC for samples here, they are sprinkled throughout.
