Little effort required to deploy on your system
As installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the executable file anywhere on the hard disk and run it immediately.
It is also possible to move RunAsDate to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any computer with minimum effort.
Quick setup process of schedules
What's more, the Windows registry does not receive new updates, and leftover files are not kept on the hard disk after eliminating the app.
The interface is based on a single window with a plain and simple structure, where you can point out an application's path using either the file browser or drag-and-drop function, as well as establish a date and time for launching it.
Multiple time related options to handle
Furthermore, you can enter command lines, run multiple instances of RunAsDate to schedule multiple utilities for execution, as well as enable the tool to change the date immediately when the program starts, move the time forward according to the real time, as well as return to the current date/time after a specific time interval. Last but not least, it is possible to create desktop shortcuts.
To sum it up
Overall, RunAsDate has a good response time and a minimal impact on computer performance, using a low amount of CPU and RAM. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, as the tool did not freeze or crash. Thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity, first-time users can quickly learn how to work with RunAsDate.
