I have a program that I have to routinely install.  after I install it I have to copy 2 different updated files to 2 different locations in the programs folder.  How can I automate the process?  I would like to be able to double click on one .exe or batch file and then copy the 2 files to the specified location overwriting the previous outdated files.  I am running windows XP.
