Use the windows scheduler to execute php.exe and pass the script filename and path as an argument.

Cron jobs are available only in Linux OS. Windows you should use scheduler as @gr8gonzo suggested.

You can also create batch file to use your cron and add the batch file into windows scheduler.

if you have not added predefined variable , you need to give full path like,

d:\xampp\php\php.exe d:\xampp\htdocs\prj\index.php"

Open in new window
