Hi,
depending on your SharePoint configuration, you should be able just to upload the file to a document library.
The only two possibilities, why an upload is blocked is either that ZIP file type is blocked or that an AntiVirus software / security add-on is installed/configured/enabled.

Which SharePoint version and edition do you use?

Hi,

It is SharePoint 2010 Foundation. It blocks .exe file but accepts .exe file in compressedf/ zipped form ( .zip ).

The dialog box for uploading does not display a progession bar. So for a large file, need to wait for a while. It is this waiting that one is not sure whether the program is hung / blocking such file format. Despite the above, it ends well.

Thank you,
RB
