Magento Cron is not run on windows

by wuang li   Last Updated March 20, 2016 08:03 AM

I want to run the cron job on magento, but the cron events are not appeared. This is my etc/config.xml file.

                <cron_expr>*/1 * * * *</cron_expr>

And I define the cron event ovserver function.

class Imagerecycle_Imagerecycle_Model_Observer {

  public function cronexec($observer){

    // do something


And to run the cron I use such a command line at the command prompt.

D:\work\magento>schtasks /create /sc minute /mo 1 /tn "my cron" /tr "php -f d:\w

So the cron.php is called every 1 minutes.
But my cronexec() function are not working. So I installed the AOE-scheduler extension and reviewed the information. There was my cron function correctly. By the way there is a message 'there is no heartbeat work now'. I guess there is no error on my php program. Only the magento cron cannot run on the windows 7. Is is right? Please help me.

Cron Setup looks fine. You can also just run cron.php from browsers as
