Could you try to give us more information. Do you run the command line in administrator mode if you use windows vista or later?

place the php.exe in the c :\windows\system32
- First check you have set the php exe path in environment variable
- Locate the path and give the full page (if linux check with pwd current path)
- in some server need to set cron with control panel

What exactly you want to do, can u ellaborate in more detail
I assume you are using Linux or some Unix.

In your crobtab, specify absolute path, like /usr/bin/yourscriptname.

Also maybe, check your php script, at the top there should be something like #!/usr/local/bin/php

Upload your script, if possible and also paste the output of folowing command:

crontab -l

This will help us to diagnose the issue.

Ok, what is the entry in the crontab or how are you calling the PHP script from CLI. ?
