I feel stupid asking this question, but how do I add an .exe file to my site so that others can download it? I use frontpage 2002, I tried insert / file / but it says that it can not load, any ideas?

I'm not sure with frontpage. I always use a FTP program. My fav is no longer being updated but is still available for download and is free. It's leech FTP. As long as your host supports FTP just log in and upload the file you want to the appropriate directory. Btw, this probably should have been posted in the development forum. I'm going to request that it be moved there now. Good luck and let me know if that works for you.

many free sites don't allow exe files to be uploaded to their sites, for many reaosns. Which host are you using?

Another possible way is to Zip the file for storage and download from the Website.

I can't find any limitations to their hosting service, so can't comment on whether or not they allow exe files.


Try zipping the exe and uploading thta. If you do not have a zip program, then get hte evaluation copy of WinZip which can be used forever. Zip it up, upload it, and see if you can access that.

normally I file would be uploaded to a site and then the html for linking to it would be an
a href="the url for the file">what you want them to click on</a
with of course brackets <> around it.
