You could do it all in VBScript using SendKeys


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I doubt it would work differently, I believe they're using the same mechanism to send the keys.

Do you get a prompt when running MediaExpress.exe to allow running it?  

ps: Google is your friend when you don;t understand things yet. ;)

Try putting in a little longer sleep before sending the keystroke, to ensure the program really has fully started and is ready to receive keystrokes.
