I'm on Win7. I've a small program (that I didn't write) which contains a single button. I need this to be run on a schedule and the button pressed (the app can then be closed).

I have set up the Task Scheduler on my Win7 machine so it runs the app, but I cannot see any way of getting the button pressed. As far as I can tell the app has no command-line arguments.

Is there a way of getting the scheduler to do this?

AutoHotkey or AutoIt should be able to do that. With AutoHotkey, you can create your script and then use Task Scheduler to run the script.
