I have create a sample work flow on infopath document library with the
check of if status field is empty, it will send mail to spacific
person. I am able to run manually with out any problem. Now I want to
schedule this workflow on daily basis on spacific time.

Please let me know how can I do it? Is this possible in SPD or I need
to work in VS2005. I am not comfortable with VS 2005.

You're going to have to code against the SharePoint Timer Service or
something of the sort.

Can you give me idea on "Schedule a task in windows that opnes up a form that
trigger my workflow" or any article on this?

I am also thinking on that I will use Sql Job and send  meil thru sp_sendmail
function, but only limitation here is How can I send mail  to a Sharepoint group
in SQL VB Script, I know I can send mail to one person? ANy idea on this?

Still I am interested in 1st options, on 2nd option I am working, but this will
be my last option.
