FWIW - you can run any executable file (and many others) from the Run dialog as long as the files are in the "Path" set in the Environmental Variables.
So, you can run .exe, .com, .bat, .msc, .cpl, .msi, and a boatload of others from the Run dialog.
Now, if you type in the full path to the file that you want to launch, you can run almost anything that you want.
Add to this the file associations options - and you can run a bunch of other stuff. For example - type "www.bleepingcomputer.com" (without the quotes) and you'll end up going to the BC home page.
On a network you can even use the UNC name to navigate to places on your own network.
