this is a similar problem as NVIZ has from the wxGui File menu or wx

Is the script somewhere in the $PATH / %PATH% ?

maybe these hints from trac #580 can help ?

rem ...make .py extension optional

rem ...not sure, the following maybe does nothing
set .py="%GRASSDIR%\extrabin\python.exe"

rem ...these are important
assoc .py=Python.File
ftype Python.File="%GRASSDIR%\extrabin\python.exe" "%1" "%*"
assoc .pyw=Python.NoConFile
ftype Python.NoConFile="%GRASSDIR%\extrabin\pythonw.exe" "%1" "%*"
