Does anyone know of a tool that will let you create a GUI frontend for use in running windows commands?

Basically I am looking for something similar to an infopath form that will let me create and modify commands that you can run from the windows command prompt.

An example would be a simple form with a dropdown box that lets you pick a directory. When you hit another button it will execute a command in that directory.

In the very simplest description I am looking for a GUI maker that will allow me to use wildcard information in batch commands.
