Script selection list (VBA/VBS rather than VB)

I have some users that just can't seem to learn how to type. Typing in a value without a typo just isn't possible.

I need to be able to present them with a selection list (like in HTML? <SELECT / <OPTION and all that?) but I need to do it from a batch script. I can re-write in vbs or js or cscript or wscript or whatever. I do not have Visual Basic. This question is really about VBA/VBS rather than VB, but there doesn't seem to be a better place to post it.

I just can't believe that with all the neat things you can do in a script on an NT system, you can't find a way to pop up a list of options and let them click or arrow up and down to their selection.

In VBA you can put a ListBox on a Form:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    ListBox1.AddItem "Choice 1"
    ListBox1.AddItem "Choice 2"
End Sub

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    MsgBox ListBox1.Text
End Sub
