Scheduled Tasks - Hourly Task Needed

Is there a way to schedule a task to run hourly via Scheduled Tasks?  I've scoured EE but haven't seen a solution that may be accomplished via the Scheduled Tasks GUI.

If there is a scriptable solution, does it populate the Scheduled Tasks GUI?

No Problem, you will find the option for mutiple schedules beneath "advanced" in the properties of the task.

Is there a way to schedule the job to run hourly using at.exe on Windows 2000 Server?  This Microsoft KB article doesn't indicate that it's possible:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313289.

No, not with at.exe. You could use an exe from 2003 if you would like to do it on the command line: schdtasks.exe
It can be "patched" so it works on win2k as well: http://www.jsifaq.com/SF/Tips/Tip.aspx?id=5335

oops, it's schtasks.exe, not schdtasks. It can be found in xp as well.
