Oh, once again I forgot point 0.5 :)

0.5) Get and install Markus Triska's openwith -- it will allow to open
your files using external programs based on file extension. It can be
found in the Emacs Wiki: http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/OpenWith

Isn't this solution good enough? I find it fantastic, but to be honest
I haven't tried it on Windows.

Another possibility for you rodent lovers ;-) would be to give dired-
dd (http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~pi9s-nnb/dired-dd-home.html) a try.
Unfortunately it won't work right out of the box with sunrise, but
after applying the following patch to dired-dd it does (I'm currently
trying to get in contact with the author to have it included in the
standard distribution of dired-dd):

*************************** CUT HERE ***************************

*************************** CUT HERE ***************************

I could write a sunrise extension to make sunrise appear as clean
dired to dired-dd (in fact I already have) but I think this direct
modification of dired-dd is a more elegant solution. For a better
effect add this to your .emacs file after requiring dired-dd:

  (setq dired-dd-find-file-method 'sr-advertised-find-file)

Dired DD has all bells and whistles one can possibly imagine for the
mouse (even assigning sounds to operations!)
