Thanks Norman.  They are appreciated. :)

 

 

Regarding exe attachments: I'd never seen a need to have direct downloads of executable files (.exe / .com etc) I can permit this if its required however but generally as Ian has mentioned for an executable file that potentially works "with" the operating system it is best in a .zip if practical. :)

 

For what it is worth (meaningless really) they are not actually registered attachment types by default anyway.

Taking heed of advice  (post 20) the two files  (post 19 ) have been zipped into a folder.

The original problem was the forums interface will not permit the uploading of executable files e.g. .exe and .com
To overcome that problem I renamed the two files and uploaded them .TAP with the explanation for the need to rename back to .exe files.

However post 20 pointed out that this forums interface will permit Zipped files, which removes the problem associated with .exe and .com files

Since that is a neater and quicker solution for others, the files that needed renaming along with the text explaining the need to rename the files (in post 19) has been deleted. In their place is one single zipped file.
