I normally use teamviewer to remote into networks/pc's/laptop's and I noticed that I can't copy/paste from my computer over to the remote appliance.  Is there a way to send or paste .exe files from a remote computer?

Does your software have the option to attach local storage?  If not, place the files you want to transfer in a shared folder on your host computer and then use either the UNC path or map a drive back to the shared location and you should then be able to move the files.

Is the problem just with sending executable files ? If that's the case you can try re-naming the file to ".txt"  (a notepad file) . Then paste the file to the remote machine and change the file extension back to .exe

Copy and paste isnt going to work.

If you are on the network
Assuming you have the right permissions

Just use
\\COMPUTERNAME\C$\

Alternatively you can just email it to them.

Depedning on the Users Mail Settings though, they may not be able to receive exe in the email

so as noted above, rename the .exe to .txt

when its received rename it back to .exe

Look at the TeamViewer tool bar at the top, you'll notice that one of the options is File Transfer. Go here and move files; it works both ways.
