Thanks Derek...

The main problem with my project is that the batch processing needs  
to be done by people used to windows tools. I've been allowed to use  
Open Source software with the condition that it won't impair their  
working habits, so I thought I'd see if people have come up with  
fancier ways of packaging PD applications for Windows than a .bat  

I wish I could just distribute a PD patch, but I have to at least try  
to make it as easy as possible for the testers.

In any case, does anyone have any thoughts on how to achieve what the  
tool has to do (nevermind how to present it)?
