windows scheduler to run a php script

I have to run a php script on a windows server 2003 machine to update a field after every hour. the php script is
UPDATE MyTable SET LockField=0 WHERE LockField<time(CURTIME())-3600;

how would I go about doing it.

Try creating a batch file (use Notepad and save as test.bat) with the following command:

c:\php\php -f c:\path\to\your\phpfile.php

Then add the batch file to the Windows Scheduled Tasks.

that didn't work..any other ideas there?
Sorry, that batch file (and the scheduled task) would have to be created on the server, not on your local machine.

c:\php\php.exe -f c:\path\to\your\phpfile.php plus little bit more changes that works. Thanks
