When you have your menu open in the designer, there is an option on the system "Menu" menu pad to "Generate". This takes the data you have enetered for your menu and creates an executable file from it.

As for executing forms and so on, use the "COMMAND" option from the menu and insert the necessary execution command directly in the menu generator.
