    If you are wedded to Windows then ASP.NET is the way to go, for anything else then I would recommend PHP.

    The best pick would be Windows PowerShell, it seems to have all the things you requested.

    Why would anyone use PHP for scripting and automation? It's not designed for this, be it under Linux or Windows envs.
