    well i wasn't able to find a way, and most everything i have read points to the answer being no.
    but i did find a nifty piece of software called AutoIt that does what i needed to do.. Here is a link for anyone else who may need it: http://www.hiddensoft.com/AutoIt/index.html

    yeah, i could have. but my skills in the programming language department are lacking at the moment. I'm learning, though. And i also don't have a compiler at work to compile and programs i write.
