Sending EXE files VIA Email
« on: July 18, 2013, 09:11:59 PM »
I'm trying to send some exe files to Skip VIA Gmail. Gmail gives me an error and states it won't allow them even in a zip file. Is there an FTP sitewe can use?

Put it in a password protected zip Larry.  Then it can't see what's inside.  Not sure about gmail, but some programs let it pass if you just renamed it to a .txt

If that doesn't work, just go out to the command prompt, rename it to a txt, or jpg, and upload it to a post in the Mod Forum, or tech library.  If you'd rather just upload it to the board at an .exe we can do that too.  You'll just need to open the permission long enough to upload it.  Let me know if you need directions.

I got Daves zip file ,Larry but when I download it unzips as a bin file and I get a message saying windows doesn't know what  to do with it

I use dropbox and I created a shared folder and sent it to your email address

I do appreciate all your efforts on this  :045:
