Visual Studio 2010 - Windows Menu Program

I am trying to figure out the best way to write a menu program.  Right now I am using a batch file with a bunch commands or other batch files to install certain software, uninstall, add registry entries, reboot the computer, etc.

I wanted to make it an intranet protected page but realized that wasn't going to work well.

So now I am thinking creating a Visual Studio VB or C# form to do this..  But I don't want to have to change code anytime something changes..

I want the form to have say 60 buttons or so.. but I want to use a .config file or something that says what the button name is and what the button does when you press it.. this way if something changes I just edit the .config file and not the actual code.

Now I have limited VBS skills.. I get by with the help of places like here or google.. so I need pretty good guidance, how to, videos or something that can let me figure this out.

I have attached a screen shot of what I kinda am looking for..

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You have asked a big question and to do what you are after will require a quite a bit of work. Since you are familiar with VBS you are probably better off using VB.Net

Here is a good link on the app.config to get you started.
