Windows 7: How do I attach a "note" to an application for display before use?

How do I attach a "note" to an application for display before use?

Hi everyone,

I am trying to figure out a way to make it so that I can attach a note, whether it be a text file, or a pop-up box that the user must respond to, upon opening an application, such as Easy File Locker. The purpose of this would be to supply a brief instruction before the user uses the application. I don't know if there is a third party software out there that can do this or if I can do it somehow without any new software. Again, it would work in such a way that the not would be shown upon opening the application that it is attached to normally, just so that there could be some instruction before use.

I know about the ability to attach a note in the right click context menu when right clicking the application, but I need something that works like when you open the application the note is opened and shown on the screen before the application itself opens.

Here are my specs:

I am running:
An Asus G73Jh laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium x64
An Intel Quad Core I7 processor
An 750 GB Hybrid Hard Drive
An ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 Graphics card

Thank you for any possible leads or solutions as to how I might be able to to this.

You can replace the shortcut to the app with a simple batch file that shows the .txt file and then opens the app...
