Thanx to Jeremy, Andrey, and the others who responded.
Jeremy's solution is closest to what I was looking for; however
I need it to work from a networked, non-drive-mapped folder.
(CMD.EXE doesn't like UNC paths.) I hadn't realized that I could
pipe a script into bash.
Andrey also suggested something that allows Windows-clickable
script files, a strict requirement, bypassing the stated, but
unnecessary requirement that it be a .BAT file, by associating
a file type with bash. This would bypass the UNC issue, so may
end up being the best solution for me.
