I use a vbs script. I've seen people code on perl. The RCV scripts are basically the same (format is the only thing that changes). I'd stay away from Windows Task Scheduler unless you want to get into administration HELL.

For automation, I'd go for Tivoli Workload Scheduler, Control-M, Autosys, etc. If you Trust Grid Control it's a good choice.... though I've not used it extensively and EM (at least dbcontrol) has the habit of breaking when you need it...

Another option is DBMS_SCHEDULER, but it's tricky and requires some testing...
