Since there is not a executable associated with it, could a script possible be creating for converting the bookmarks.html links into IE favorites?

You could do this:

1. Copy the "bookmark.html" file to a temporary folder.

2. Do a line-by-line search for the string <A HREF="

3. If this is found, pull out the text from that point until the next found quotation mark.

4. Create a shortcut in the "Favorites" folder using the URL extracted for the "file" and the name of the site for the "LNK" (with a URL extension).

Who lied and told you life would EVER be fair?

Why don't you just click "Import" on IE's File menu? :) You can import a bookmarks.html file very easily.

If you want to write a script like benched42 suggested, the following might help: http://www.robvanderwoude.com/xtreme.html
