Ok.  Going back to our previous attempt.  I have attached a batch file

Don't forget that not all windows installations will put windows in c:\windows. Someone may have installed it to WinME, Win98, 98SE or any other type of directory structure. I can't recall what the variable to use for that directory is, but if we want it to work out of the box, it might be good to use it in this instance.

Completely agree. I can't get to a MS W* machine at the moment but that variable should definitely be used. The above was just what Jan gave to me to test which happened to work on the machine I was on.

Granted, most users who name their windows install directory something other than the default windows are probably also going to know how to change the script (and that they'd probably need to do so). It's not a major change, in any case.

They might not know because it might have been automatically changed by a Windows upgrade.
