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.

This is not exactly what you are describing, but its useful enough for me to recommend you look at: Scriptomatic -> http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/scriptcenter/dd939957.aspx
