I see how to launch many other programs from a batch file, but I can't find a command like open on Mac OS X. Does such a tool exist on Windows? Powershell, or a Windows API call from an executable would also work.

Or, put another way, how can I invoke Windows default "Open" handler for a file from a batch file or powershell script?
