If cron is used to update post counts, how is it done on windows?

#1
Installed XF on IIS...

The FAQ states:

"How and when are user and post counts updated?
The global user and post counts are updated via a cron job (Rebuild Board Totals Counter) every 10 minutes."

I can't see any scheduled tasks in my windows admin panel.

I'm confused... how is the post count updated then?

xenforo handels the cron jobs in an own db table.

cron.php is linked as a "image" in the footer, which is called if necessary
Code:
<xen:if is="{$cronLink}"><img src="{$cronLink}" width="1" height="1" alt="" style="display: none" /></xen:if>
and this script runs the cronjobs:)
(hope you know what i mean^^)

Makes perfect sense, thank you very much for that.

hm, but does this really happen?:D

I thought that this would also cause some problems on my vB boards, but my pages have always at least 1 visitor (real or spider)

That is correct, I don't think that would happen at all. And if there is nobody seeing the forum then the cron job might as well not run, why would one need to update the view counters if there is nobody to see them ....

Subscriptions and emails is a whole another topic, though.
