".exe.config" files are application configs for .NET applications.

Open it with Notepad as it is semi-readable text (as far as XML goes).

If you have file extensions off, windows may be hiding. the .config part, resulting in it showing just .exe (it is the most sily option windows has on by default). If that is the case, you should look for setuptv with no file extension and run that.
