Im making this application in vb.net, just for personal use and im just making it to practice and to learn more about vb.net programming.
Any response or comment is welcome.
Thanks in advance :)
cscript, wscript and the Windows Scripting Host objects allow you to do things that you can't do from within a browser, but these are very much limited to scripting tasks, and won't allow you to create a GUI.
It is possible to create a VB application that does little more than host a browser window. You could use such a browser window to create a rich jquery UI.
By setting the window.external property from your VB app (see this question and this HOWTO), you can give the embedded browser access to things outside the browser environment, thereby enabling it to interact with the local machine in a manner normally forbidden by a browser.
I have to disappoint you, this is not possible. Unless there is some browser-emulator tool or some js-engine under the hood in your application, there is obviously no way to link those worlds.
node.js also on windows platforms. But there again, it is not possible to access the windows API. But there might be a plugin which allows for that.
Write a Metro application?
HTML applications (HTA) may give you what you're looking for. They don't seem to get much attention these days but try changing our
.htm suffix to
.hta and then run it from the command line. I haven't figured out how to debug it, but hey.
