I'm looking for someone to write a small Windows (XP, Vista, 7) application that:
1) Reads some Wscript from a text file
2) Executes the script
3) Saves the script output / response to a text file
4) Quits

That's it. The program should run silently without any UI or window.

When the application starts, it should look in its current directory for a file called "script.txt" containing Wscript to run. It should be run and any output or response saved to a file called "response.txt". Then the program should quit. If no "script.txt" file can be found or opened, the program should quit.

Should be pretty quick and simple. Let me know if you have any questions.

Please state what language you intend to write this in. I prefer something that does not require the user to have installed something else like (.NET or Java).

Example wscript (contents of "script.txt" file):
var iTunes = false;
try {
iTunes = WScript.CreateObject("iTunes.Application");
} catch(e) {
