    I made a batch file that calls other batchs files, if I type a 1 it gets that batch file, if I press 2 and enter it starts that program, it has 5 choices, I could add more but thats too much right now. I downloaded a tool called Autoit, It has it's own scripting language.. I got an example and it's very premitive, not actaully very good, but I could use a little help on getting the buttons to do functions like open programs.. e.g run a batch file, open notepad..

    Code:
    ; button buster
    ; by gui_tex
    ;
    #include <GUIConstants.au3>
    
    [b]GUICreate("test",240,180)
    $button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("1", 0,0,40,40,$BS_ICON)
    GUICtrlSetImage (-1, "shell32.dll",5)
    Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
    Run("notepad.exe")
    WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")[/b]
    ; does not work at all!! notepad starts up autmatically, buttons dont do anything
    
    $button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("2", 40,00,40,40,$BS_ICON)
    GUICtrlSetImage (-1, "shell32.dll",7)
    
    $button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("3", 80,00,40,40,$BS_ICON)
    GUICtrlSetImage (-1, "shell32.dll",22)
    
    $button4 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("4", 120,0,40,40,$BS_ICON)
    GUICtrlSetImage (-1, "shell32.dll",23)
    
    $button5 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("5", 160,0,40,40,$BS_ICON)
    GUICtrlSetImage (-1, "shell32.dll",32)
    
    $buttonclose = GUICtrlCreateButton ("close", 200,0,40,40,$BS_ICON)
    GUICtrlSetImage (-1, "shell32.dll",28)
    GUISetState()
    
    ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
    	$msg = GUIGetMsg() 
    	If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    Wend
    
    GUIDelete()

    Hey, are you trying to release a batch-file alternative to Windows Vista before MS manage to release the real thing? Sweet. ;)
