Well you can use the script to start the GUI both you can also convert this to a EXE file, to convert the script to a EXE you can  download PS2EXE

Now you can run the coede below to confert the PS1 file to a EXE file

  • Start powershell in version 2 (if you are running version 3)
    powershell.exe -version 2
  • Browse to the folder where you unzipt the PS2EXE and run the code
    cd c:PS2EXE
    ps2exe.ps1 -inputFile C:ScriptsFTPuser.PS1 -outputFile C:ScriptsFTPuser.exe -noConsole
