I need to schedule a Windows task to run a script every minute. In most cases, the script doesn't need to execute anything and exists immediately. When the script needs to execute something, I want it to start the job as quick as possible, thus the one minute interval.
Now, the UI of the Windows Scheduler has become quite confusing in recent years, so I'm not sure what's the best way to run a task every minute (or 5 minutes ..) on Windows 2008 R2.
Is this the best way to schedule a task under Windows every minute? Is it reliable? Does it start directly after a machine is rebooted, or is it only started again at 12pm? Please note that I cannot use/write a custom service application for this, as I need it to be very portable.
