    Need a simple frontend script for this command line utility movdump -i inputfile1 -o outputfile -ref inputfile2
    So inputfile1 Should ask you to specify location and filename of a file, in this case it will be a Broken or Incomplete Video file
    input2 asks for a Reference file in this case a working video file that is encoded the same as inputfile1
    outputfile will ask where to save the repaired file and what to call it.
    I have literally zero programming knowledge otherwise I would obviously do this myself.
    Thanks,

    T.

    so you want it to throw up two open dialogues and a save dialogue?

    edit - having had a quick look at the vbscript docs (and found no easy/portable access to common dialogues) I think you'll need a powershell guru to help you. or try autoit or something like it.

    Yeah if possible that is what I am hoping for. I thought maybe a VBScript might be able to achieve this but I can't find easy quick tutorial or one that I would find quick anyway. My limited experience in programming was 28 yrs ago and was QBasic in a gr. 9 computer class.

    Yeah thanks anyway it looks like the command line utility won't work anymore without a license. I just hate to dish out $70 CAD to have the program with its own Frontend. The program I was looking at using this for was the actual part of Video Repair tool by Grau GMBH that does the work. I use to be able to just use the command line utility to repaid mp4's that where incomplete or corrupt. Anyways thanks for your time.
