Create a link to automatically run .exe file once downloaded

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

Executable fileIn short, you cannot create a link that automatically executes a download. To prevent programs that may contain viruses or other malware, any executable file or other file that is not recognized by the browser will prompt the user before it runs. It is strictly up to the user to make the decision to download, and this feature cannot be changed by any HTML code, Java, CGI or other scripting language.
