Internal - Creating Scheduled/Cron jobs for XPe

Last Updated: Jan 07, 2014 01:51PM PST
Download and install nnCron LTE:

Edit c:\Program Files\cron\ to include the following:
# Classic crontab format:
# Minutes Hours Days Months WeekDays Command

#*/15 8-16 * * 1-5 checkmail.exe

# Performs restart nightly at 23:59
59 23 * * * C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -rf

# Don't forget to put "c:\Program Files\cron\startcron.bat"
# into the registry for autorun at startup!  Startup folder
# probably works too.
Note the last instruction-- Startcron.bat must be set to autorun at startup.

Consult the help file in creating new cron jobs.  It's very simple-- the first 5 fields are the time (this has only to-the-minute resolution), and the last field is the command to run on the schedule.  The example above reboots the computer every night at 11:59PM (23:59)
