It may be possible in Windows, but I can't really tell since I only have JMP for mac (on the mac it seem not to be possible since JMP AppleScript support declined sharply since version 4).

Here's a workaround that works for all platforms. The On Open property can be assigned to JMP scripts attached to a data table. Such scripts run when the data table is opened. Hence you can have a dummy data table (.jmp) instead of an .exe to automatically run a script with a doubleclick on the file. See page 133 in the JMP Scripting guide (v.8) for details.

Since this is still relevant, I wanted to update the page number according to what the Scripting Guide has.

Pages 50,55, and 90

at the very beginning of the file will cause it to auto-run without opening the script editor or further mouse clicks.

As for the making it executable, I'm currently working on a solution to use a JMP script in a Windows' automatic task (reoccurs regularly or when triggered by some other event). I'll update with the details if it becomes necessary.
