Launch a Docker container with a Windows Scheduled Task

Is there any way to launch a Docker container in Windows using the Task Scheduler? The majority of tutorials show this by using a crontab in Linux, is there a Windows alternative?

    A “Docker container in Windows” would support Windows images, not the usual Linux images (launched on a Linux host by a crontab)

    You would need a full Docker on Windows solution, and I am not referring to Docker for Mac and Windows Beta, which would run a Linux (Alpine) host on a Hyper-V VM on Windows: that would not run any Windows image, only Linux images.

    I am talking about Docker for Windows (provided your Windows10 has the latest Hyper-V feature). Up to very recently, that was only possible on a Windows Server 2016 TP4.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
