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.
