I've got a recommendation: Python is an easy language to learn (most people even consider it to be a scripting language). Python on Windows has many cool commands like startfile(myfile.ext) that will fire up the app that is associated with .ext. It will run from the command line or (with not too much more work) you can give it a GUI interface. There a many begining scripter getting help on the Python forum, it's free, and not nearly as complicated as an MS programming environment.
Get Python 2.5 msi here . This site also has some tutorial pages, etc. Check it out,
