I'll point out that recent versions of Windows can run scripts in VBScript through the use of the built-in CScript.exe or WScript.exe commands. I've only ever used VBScript through these, so I don't know if other scripting languages are possible. If one isn't familiar with Perl, it might be possible to do what the original poster wanted by using the batch-file-calls-vbscript.
