ASP.NET Task Scheduler

Hey experts,

 I searched for a library that helps in doing task scheduling in ASP.NET; I found this: http://www.componentsource.com/products/portsight-task-scheduler-net/downloads.html

but it needs installation for a windows service to be used on the server, and the site is hosted externally, and we can't install anything on the server; so is thsi the only solution or is there some other solution like the Quartz scheduler for J2EE Web Applications (which doesn't need any installations)

Send an e-mail everyday at 6:30 AM with some info in it extracted from a web page. All that is now done except the scheduling part

Why not just use the regular windows scheduler to call a webservice or to run a vb/c# console app that sends the emails? Is there a reason it needs to be launched from within ASP.NET originally?

They want this scheduling part to be done on their web server in which they don't have full access to (since it's hosted at their provider), so they can't create a scheduled task for example on that server; they would resort to using a local server only if this was the only way for it work (i.e. it couldn't be done using ASP.NET)

This did the trick; many thanks for your help!
