Sharepoint 2013 - Run a batch file or VBS file

We have an internal Intranet site.  We have lots of batch files for end users to remove icons, add icons, install acrobat, etc.

We are in the process of setting up a Sharepoint 2013 intranet site and would like to be able to put these batch files in Sharepoint.. I changed the allow extensions to accept .bat and .cmd, I uploaded a simple batch file.  When I click on it instead of asking me to run is only allows me to save.

On our current intranet site we use .cmd to launch Crystal Reports in a viewer, when you click on it you can select Run.

I have tried adding .bat mime type to the Shaepoint IIS site and set security in IE to Intranet but I still get the save only dialog box.

Any way to change it or make it simpler? I dont want users downloading batch files then having to run them.
