It's been more than 10 years since I used a windows machine last time, 
so I'm not really sure I can help much  here.
If you can't make executable scripts on windows, you may probably work 
around the issue by scheduling a task as 

octave --eval 'source D:path\to\script\your_script_name.m'

or if your script is somewhere in Octave's default loadpath, simply

octave --eval 'your_script_name'

this way the executable to run is octave itself, while the script is passed as 
a command line option.
