  • Schedule on OS X?

    In the OS X version (7) of Zoom Indexer, I see the option for scheduling under the Tools menu in the File bar but it is grayed out. Does the OS X version not support scheduled indexing? I had an older Windows version of Zoom indexer that I scheduled to run and it worked great but I don't run any Windows machines anymore and hate to run Windows on my Mac server simply to index website and upload the results so I bought the Mac version to replace that. Does the Mac version not support this or is there a preference I need to change to enable this?

    Help is greatly appreciated.

    As indicated in the table here, scheduling is currently only available on the Windows version:

    But we do have plans to add this in the future. At the moment we are just busy with higher priority features and bug fixes.

    Having said that, there are third party scheduling applications on the Mac that you can use. There is also the "cron" utility that is described here:

    The Zoom command-line options are detailed here, which you can use with cron to schedule indexing jobs with your pre-configured .zcfg configuration files:

      Thanks Ray. Does the GUI window need to be open then to run this via cron?

        No the GUI window does not need to be open. The cron job should schedule the ZoomIndexer.app application. Let us know if you have any trouble.

        If you have the Enterprise Edition, you could also alternatively make a cron job with the ZoomEngine executable using the console mode.

          I am unable to get the app to run from the command line. Here is what I have tried so far:

          $ open -n /Applications/ZoomIndexer.app --args -s ~/zoom.zcfg -update

          result: opens the app but nothing happens.

          /Applications/ZoomIndexer.app/Contents/MacOS/ZoomIndexer -s ~/zoom.zcfg -update

          result:
          2015-04-06 10:01:04.801 ZoomIndexer[17434:2158983] No Info.plist file in application bundle or no NSPrincipalClass in the Info.plist file, exiting

          I have tried symlinking the program in my PATH.
          I have tried to alias it.

          Somehow I finally managed to get it to do the following:

          ZoomIndexer -s ~/zoom.zcfg -update

          Does not seem to be doing the update though.

          Any ideas?
