running a job every hour

i want to start a program every hour. i saw the at-command but here i can only say "start the job every day". How can i tell w2k that i want to have something like the unix crontab.

Task Scheduler in contol panel. should be installed if you are on IE 5.0 or higher.

Make a batch file (to make it easier to edit) with these contents:

at 1:00 /every:m,t,w,th,f c:\programyouwant
at 2:00 /every:m,t,w,th,f c:\programyouwant
at 3:00 /every:m,t,w,th,f c:\programyouwant
etc

Start it from the command line and it will schedule the tasks for you.

The problem of these "cron"-jobs is that i have to create them out of an own application. So, the interacting with the Task Scheduler should not be done by the customer. It seems to be the easiest to handle the jobs by creating batch-files (like peter_fleur) said.
