    Rename the exe to scr and set it as the screen saver.

    I don't know if it will exit when the mouse moves though.

    Dead easy this... look for a programe called Autoscript.. I wrote a couple with that ( files on my site ).

    Basically my apps start an application, brings it to the foreground and then closes it when finished.

    That been said you can get it to do what ever you want as its like a mini programing language...
