I have an executable, say foo.exe. Because of a bug I need this executable to run at "low" priority at all times. The executable gets opened by another executable so replacing it with a batch file is not possible (as far as I know).

The executable is part of a game, so replacing it with a starter executable might trigger some integrity checks.

What would be a working solution?

This looks like it might work. I haven't tested it, though, and the comments indicate it may not work on Windows 7, which is why I am not posting this as an answer. –  Bob Feb 26 '12 at 15:38
