The Scheduler runs as a service, and with the changes in Windows operating systems (Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8…) and so on, service dependencies have become problematic. We built the all-new UltraSentry from the ground up using a new framework that is multi-platform compatible. Tapping into System Services greatly vary from Windows to Mac to Linux. In the end the scheduler may be brought back in a later edition but for stability and dependability reasons, we dropped the feature.
