While there is a "process" trigger, it focuses on whether or not a process is running on the computer. I am looking for a process trigger that will run an executable and react based on the exit/return code from the executable.

We have various applications we have written to interface with other 3rd party applications. Many times we would like to trigger a job in VC based on a particular state of one of these applications. If we had the ability to run an executable as a trigger, we would write our own executable which would return a specific code if the desired triggering event is recognized. The trigger would run on a periodic basis (similar to FTP remote file triggers) and "fire" if the return code meets a user-defined value.
