    What do you not know how to do? Open and save data to binary files? Processing the data into compiled formats? It would be easier just to make a GUI based application that sends commands to tool.exe, but thats something I don't know how to do in vb.

    This is what most people do for commands they need to redo all the time, but if you want to make an app that will enter the commands for you, like a visual interface, where you can put in specific values...
    Code:
    AppActivate(Path.Text)
    Windows.Forms.SendKeys.Send("your command here")

    This makes your tool window the active window, then sends commands to it.
    Path.Text would be the name of the command prompt window when you're running tool. For me atleast, it's the path to the cmd.exe located in my CE root dir.

    But that "code" you put on; you have to have the buttons/or the right keys on the form. or else it underlines it all and gives an error.

    You could use the shell function...
    shell ("[tool location]\tool.exe [options]")
