Yes. You have to start the scheduler service, and then you can use the at command to start processes at certain time.

1.From Control panel > start > setting > control panel > start services
2. Click scheduler > or Task scheduler on Workstation > start serices
3. Select Automatic and click ok

on your at command don't forget to add /interactive to handle error message otherwise the scheduler will hang and you will have to reboot to reuse your scheduler
