This is how our sysadmin set up the scheduler to run every 5 minutes: 
"It's an ugly hack, but it works. First you set up some date and time
for it to run. I have it running daily at 3:45pm. In the advanced
properties of the task, you check the box next to "Repeat Task". I set
it for every 5 minutes, but the key is the duration. If you set it for
24 hours, then it keeps going until the next "daily" run, which starts
the process over."

Can you describe how to properly set up a scheduled task in Windows to
run the Eventum scripts?  This would great as some users here use third
party solutions to do it.  I would like to see some folks who have
successfully used task scheduler to post how they set it up.  Thanks.

We did end up using the scheduler, and it's working well. But as some
pointed out in the discussion thread I referenced, the scheduler is a
more difficult to set up than a Unix-type cron job. One of the users
something to the effect that the scheduler can't run jobs as frequently
flxibly as cron. My sysadmin said that is not correct, and currently
got the mail job running every 5 minutes.
