I also don't see why you needed a .exe, the user can just click on the script... or is it just because people are used to launch programs from clicking executables?

yeah, technophobic art students get scared of anything.

I will try to go for the script but starting an app from a shell script 
is not what they are used to :) I wanted to find a solution that would 
allow me to pass them a copy of PD that they just double click to run 
with no setup involved at all.

I know that they would learn more if they would install the extras and 
set the paths and preferences, but some of them would drop at there
