Windows 7: How do I compile a batch file to an existing .exe

How do I compile a batch file to an existing .exe

What i'm trying to do is every time I open a .zip, a specific sound and text file open as well, in their default applications. I'm using WINRAR as default for zip, VLC default for sound, and Notepad for txt. I think a batch file is how one would do this in Windows 7. I'm going over commands and making the files open, but i'm not sure how to compile to the winrar.exe or if thats the way to go about this task. Does anyone have a good idea on how to get this done.

Yes, a bat file would be an option for that.
The START command will do that, it simply opens the file as if you would double-click it, opening any files with whatever program you have associated with them.
Put this in a bat file:
Code:
@ECHO OFF
START c:\zipfile.zip
START c:\sound.wav
START c:\textfile.txt
Save the file somewhere handy and run it. It should open all 3 things at once. There is no need for compilation or anything else, just run the bat instead of opening WinRAR or any file.
