Hi @JS2017,

 

try adding it to your cgi folder...............

hi sir,

i have tried it. but it says document not found when i launch it.

 

i tried

 

www.billme/invoice/invoice.exe

and even tried:

www.billme/cgi-bin/invoice/invoice.exe

 

both giving same error message.

 

hi sir,

i have tried to put htm file and txt file and xml file. those files can run if i use the link.

it appears as if the exe is not allowed. 

then how can i change the setting to allow executables to run?
