    Hello I was wondering if there was a simple program out there that I could make a custom exe file that i can make buttons that when pressed would open other files (like a batch file or another exe file). If there is please show me the way :D

    Visual Studio is simple to use for some but not for others...

    If your just starting out...Visual Basic 6.0 Easy to use and there are tons of custom controls that you can use.

    try to use Winrar 3.x to create exe that run batch on silence mode

    example :

    and i comment tabs when write
    Enter a comment manually :

    Setup=batchfile.bat
    TempMode
    Silent=1
    Overwrite=1


    and compress file "winrar is good tools for that"

    or

    Create an simple application "with forms and buttons" in any programming languages such are Delphi/VB.NET/C#/C++ etc.

    p.s.
    if you made for Vista/7/2008 is good to use Netframework's languages VB.NET/C# for fast and well integration to these system with Visual Studio Express at least!
