i need a simple piece of code, perhaps written in visual basic, to run on the client's computer. the program will need to be installed on their machine because it will allow them to select a local folder, and it'll upload all the photos from that folder to our webserver, using http file upload. it'll simulate a browser, in other words. the first visit to the page, the software should be installed on their machine - they should only have to click a security warning (if absolutely necessary). after installation, and also at any subsequent visit to the particular page on our server, the software will run itself without the install happening again. the software needs to do the following, with VERY little interface. Allow user to select a local folder of images (remember last selection they made, start there) Upon 'send these images to my account', it'll ask them for their account password, and then the name of the album they want to use. In the background, independent from the browser, it'll upload all the photos, with a status bar somewhere. When done open a browser to a url we’ll provide. Then, quit. This page below does exactly what I want, as far as installing from the browser, and then triggering the install from the browser if it's alreading installed: [url removed, login to view] our server will need to send a parameter to the software, which will be the account they are currently logged into. Also, the existing album names so they can select which one they want to add it to (or they can enter a new name) that’s it. the code for install/triggering script can be modified from the url above, and code for browsing a folder and http uploading each image has got to be available as well. this is all i want for now. my server is running php, no asp. i don't think it is needed anyway.

windows, and IE. as many windows as possible. if there's a way to run this on mac that would rock. I am asking for visual basic but if there's a scripting language that runs on windows that could be used instead, i would prefer that because then minor tweaks could be done by myself. i don't want to invest in a visual basic development system if i can avoid it.
