Hi all,

In my windows service I have a need to have a timer running. Having a timer
running when you know  is easy, the question is I have a setting in my
app.config for my windows service  interval : <add key="PollingInterval"
value="60000" /> and then an additional setting being the a time setting
<add key="TimeToCheck" value="5:00am" />. 


What I am trying to achieve is every 60000ms the timer will check the
current time, if the current time is = 5:00am then run the task (kinda like
when you create a Task in the windows scheduler) , I am a bit  muddled on
what to do here, should do something like:


Private Sub tmchkUpd_Elapsed(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.Timers.ElapsedEventArgs) Handles tmchkUpd.Elapsed

        If DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay >= DateTime.Parse("5:00am").TimeOfDay Then

'do my stuff

        End If

    End Sub


How do all of ya out there do this, best methods or techniques?
