It looks like you're trying to reinvent the wheel. What you need is a frontend. You could download a package I made that is all setup and ready to go.

Well if you're still pulling your hair out. I made a package that includes the frontend Mamewah with all the emulators included. No roms or bios files! 

[url=]Mamewah Pack[/url]
This pack contains the following systems

Gameboy Advance
lynx (you need a bios image called lynxboot.img)
mame (you need to include your own version)
Winkawaks (to exit it's necessary to press ENTER to pause the game, then Alt+F4 to exit)


1. Unzip the zip file in your C:\ Drive in other words C:\juegos

2. Go inside Mamewah's folder (C:\juegos\Mamewah) and launch Setup.bat it
* *takes a few seconds to install. When it's done press OK

3. Put your roms in the "roms" folder for every emulator you would like to use. Do
* *the same for the snaps and videos (for Nebula,Winkawaks,Raine, and Zinc use Mame's folders)

4. Launch every emulator and adjust the controls to your liking. For Zsnes once your done
* *open zsnesw.cfg and change this line GUIDisable = 0 to GUIDisable = 1 other wise you'll go 
* *back to Zsnes's menu instead of to the frontend when trying to exit.

5. This package doesn't include a mame version since everyone uses a differnt on
* *just unzip your version inside C:\juegos\mame\

6. If you want background music during the gam selection screen put your mp3's
* *inside C:\juegos\musica


 Launch Mamewah located in inside C:\juegos\Mamewah
 Press Keyboard key "2". Choose "Select Platform" and press 1
 You'll be presented with a list of emulators, choose one then press 1
 then press "2"> Game List Options> Generate list.

 "1" Launches a game when selected and also serve as select when in the menu
 "2" Brings up the Menu
 "3" Previous Emulator
 "4" Next Emulator
 "ESC" Exits the game and also exits Mamewah when in Mamewah

All of these keys can be change. You have to modify "Mamewah.cfg" located
in C:\juegos\Mamewah\config instructions are located in the "docs" folder in
a file called "controles"

You can also change the keys to exit the emulators, since i'm using
Closemul. Read "Closemul - Readme"

If you don't want or need a particular emulator just delete it from 2 folders
C:\juegos\Mamewah\config and C:\juegos\

For those of you who have pc's that won't run NeoGeo, Capcom or any other 
mame games full speed. I have included some "alternative" emulators:Nebula, Winkawaks, and Raine
For Capcom and Neogeo I recommend Nebula.If there's a Mame game that runs
slowly give Raine a try. List of Raine supported games: [url][/url] 

Additional Emulator Packs:
[url=]Mame32 v.0112 for MamewahPack[/url]
To install additional packs just unzip them insided your C:\ drive
