How to add scheduled task to run php scripts in Windows

Few days ago, for one of our PHP / MySQL project, we were needed to run two php scripts at every minute. We usually develop/deploy our projects in LAMP environment, where we use crontab for our scheduled tasks. But our client have wanted us to run the system in Windows. So we have chosen  XAMPP. To run our two php scripts every 1 & 2 minute, we thought of developing a simple tool for windows which would run at background and execute those two php scripts. Fortunately we have found about schtasks, a native scheduler in Windows to run scheduled task smoothly in command prompt.
