I want to schedule a tasks every 15 minutes.

I have been looking at the AT command and Windows 2000 scheduler. But There is no option to schedule a task more times a day or more times per hour.

Is there an other solution for this.

Hi ptrex,

Take a look at the properties of the task you've scheduled.
Schedule => Advanced
Here you can set to repeat the task every 15 minutes.

After setting up a new task right click on it select properties > Schedule > Advanced
Lets say you have scheduled the task to perform daily, you have an option to repeat task every 15 minutes, and under duration you select 24 hours. So you will end up with a task that repeats every 15 minutes, for 24 hours and daily!
Another option is to configure multiple schedules (a chekk box on the schedule tab page) for the same task, every 15 minutes.
