Hey guys,

I hope that you will be able to help me. I want to run an application (.exe) file on a network that will not allow .exe files to run.

My question is - is it possible to change and rename the file extension to .*** such that the application will run?

Hoping to hear from someone soon.

Cheers!

If this is your network then change the permissions such that an .exe can be run.

Yeah, that would be a nice easy solution, unfortunately the whole problem is that it ISN'T my network!

Cheers for the suggestion Leurgy.

Anyone else? :thumbsup:

Exploring the limitations... I'm interested to know if it is possible to get around this kind of lock down if there is a simple way around. Or could i run the application in a html file?
