    I’m putting together a new site to host a free educational Windows game community. The 50MB I’ve got here at WordPress is plenty, but unfortunately I can’t find a way of hosting the single EXE file (installer for the game) for visitors to download.

    Is there any way to do this? Or is there a fast alternative hosting site that won’t frustrate visitors? The installer will only be about 10MB.

    Here’s all about it: http://jeopardygame.wordpress.com

    Thanks in advance,

    Stu.

    As the FAQ (What filetypes can I upload?) tells you, only pictures and documents can be uploaded here (or sound and movies too if you buy an upgrade). Unless you want to disguise the EXE file by renaming it, you’ll have to put it on another server. I’m sure your favorite search engine can help you find a place for it.

    No, that wouldn’t work. The software wouldn’t just check for extension names but for the content-type of the file being uploaded and would drop the ones not allowed.

    I ended up using mediafire.com
