Isn't everything in windows inherently executable? And then there's the
whole "$PATH"-type problem.

Though perhaps something that read/merged all the "Start Menu" entries.
List all the files recursively in two directories (the "all users" start
menu dir and the local user's start menu directory). All of those are meant
to be applications - so you wouldn't have to test filetypes (unless someone
stuck a jpg or similar into them, which would then launch based on
associated app).

At first I thought the DWM for W32 was a waste of time. But I'm switching
jobs shortly, and I doubt I'll have a *nix flavor to use on my desktop.
This would make life so much easier!
