When should you upload/download a file using a stream instead of a file?  So far I have found the streaming a dll or exe does not always work.

In the event that you're launching things like DLL's from the network, the likelihood is they would need to be registered using Regsvr32.

You are correct, running it from a network you're almost certain to have issues. Also don't forget depending on the size of the program, it may not be suitable for you to stream it that way anyway due to network constraints.

Just package it up and install it locally IMHO
