  • Although I don't have much experience with WPF, only Windows Forms, this blog post might shed some light on which decision you should make:

    If you are looking to just add a quick and dirty UI on top of a small script or executable tool, Windows Forms would be the answer, as it is very easy to learn and use. However, since you have the best tools currently available, and you say you want to do it the right way, I would say learn WPF now. You will benefit from it later on.
