You can't make an exe as a wallpaper.

You can, however, create a webpage that will run javascript (or vbscript) code.

Change walpaper

Declare Function SystemParametersInfo Lib "user32" Alias "SystemParametersInfoA" (ByVal uAction As Integer, ByVal uParam As Integer, ByVal lpvParam As String, ByVal fuWinIni As Integer) As Integer

    Const SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER = 20
    Const SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE = &H2
    Const SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE = &H1

    Public Function SetDesktopImage(ByVal fn As String) As Long
        SetDesktopImage = SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER, 0, fn, SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE Or SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE)
    End Function
