How to open the .exe file from locally mounted S3 object Storage?

I have mounted oracle cloud storage object (S3) as local drive in my PC using rclone utility.

It is working fine but when i run the .exe file from the drive it shows attached error.

Likely S3 completely disables the execute bit on files, so you can never execute any file... ever...

If you could execute files off S3, this would produce a complex security problem, where S3 could be hacked + any executable overwritten by Malware... then next time overwritten executable was run, machine(s) would be hacked.

At least allowing random S3 files to ever execute seems like a security hole.

Scanning many other... similar questions... this seems like a design feature of S3...

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/config/latest/developerguide/s3-bucket-policy.html covers settings + there's no mention of setting an execute bit.
