File Scheduler

I need a way to run a batch file every half hour or so on my server. With the windows scheduler it can only be ran once a day at most, so it seems.

Does anyone know of any freeware apps that can do this, plus be ran as a service?

Thanks.

I was wrong. You can do this with the Windows Task Scheduler.

Here is a posting on it all:
