I'm not convinced that's a good idea (you're bound to run into
permissions problems and other such Windows annoyances), but if you
have to follow through with it, you might consider storing the binary
executables in custom properties and unleashing them when necessary.

set the exeFile of button "RunMe" to url "binfile:c:/myFile.exe"

put the exeFile of button "RunMe" into url "binfile://pequod/x/z.exe"
