Yes. I do it all the time. I keep mine an .exe because I'm running on an NT server but I also have .cgi's that I use on other servers that have been compiled in dos mode.

The answer is only YES if the server runs an operating system that supports .EXE files.  As was stated, this works with NT but will not work with thew vast majority of ISPs who use some unix derivative.
