AutoIT help with running .bat files?

I am very new to AutoIT but it looks like an interesting tool to use so I thought I would give it a try.  I am wanting to create a menu with 4 buttons that when clicked will just point to 4 different bat files depending on which button is clicked.  The bat files should be able to finish the installs for what I am wanting so I'm pretty sure that's all I need from AutoIT is just to create the menu and the buttons.  How do you point the button to a specific bat file.

More complete example
GUICreate('My App', 400, 20)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Button 1', 0, 0, 100, 20)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Button 2', 100, 0, 100, 20)
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Button 3', 200, 0, 100, 20)
$Button4 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Button 4', 300, 0, 100, 20)
GUISetState()

While 1
	$msg = GUIGetMsg()
	Select
		Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
			ExitLoop
		Case $msg = $Button1
			Run(@ComSpec & ' /C <Batch File 1 Name>.bat', '', @SW_HIDE)
		Case $msg = $Button2

If I were you I'd convert the bat files to AutoIT as wel. Take a look a the AutoIT help file, it's very elaborate..
