Windows 7: Possible for Mac Pages files to display preview as icon

Possible for Mac Pages files to display preview as icon

Is there a way of forcing windows, when confronted with a .pages file created on a Mac (which it sees as a folder), to look for the PDF Preview of the document in the contents of the document and display that as an icon for the .pages file and allow it to open in Adobe Reader?

The PDF Preview is located in 'Example.pages/QuickLook/Preview.pdf' and is the same for every document saved with a preview.

Does anyone know of any way/program which can achieve this?

Thank you in advance for your sugestions

You could try associating the file extension with a PDF viewer.
