Magento cron job on Windows

I have Magento CE 1.9.3.3 hosting on a Windows IIS web server, how to create cron job?
Is it the same as creating Windows Task Scheduler? If yes please advise what file or script to execute, and usually how frequent the cron job should be executed.

I referred to the solutions at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1098786/run-bash-script-from-windows-powershell which answered by Marius Tancredi and Rynant.

Managed to get it working by creating a Windows Task Scheduler to run Powershell.exe, which essentially execute the .sh file.
