Associating your configuration files with DosBox.exe in Windows isn't too terribly difficult. I'd recommend that you use a file extension that is more specific than ".conf" so you don't run the risk of trampling any other file types.  I've chosen ".dosbox".
+
 
+
By passing the right arguments and adding a few verbs you can right click on the ".dosbox" files to get some useful commands such as "Run FullScreen".  I've done this below- it shouldn't be too hard to think of how you can tweak this for your own use.
+
 
+
Setting the perceived type gets you default behavior for text files.  What this means is you'll get the edit verb automatically and it will open your default editor.
+
 
+
You can make these changes manually to the registry or put all of the following lines in a file with the extension of ".reg".  If you double click on said file it will put the entries into the registry for you.
+
 
+
Important- make sure the path to your DosBox exe is correct.  Also, if you want to associate ".conf" instead of ".dosbox" simply change the only reference to ".dosbox". ([HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.conf])
