You shouldn't need a Python program for that.
To run the not simultaneously:
Put those commands with appropriate names in a fifth batch file and
execute that and it will work.
To run them simultaneously (which won't break Windows, but might not do
what you would like, depending on what those batch files actually do),
just add the "start" command into the equation. You can get help on the
start command using "start /?" at a DOS prompt.
