Auto-renaming EXE files in deviationsAs you might know, deviantART doesn't allow uploading of EXEs or EXEs in ZIPs for security reasons. Many deviants rename the exe extension to something else, include a note for users to rename the extension, zip the folder and upload it. It becomes a hassle for users to rename the extension back to exe if there are multiple files.Kishan-Bagaria
There's a way to automate the renaming so do this instead:
1. Rename the extension from exe to rename_exe. (If you know how to use CMD, cd into the directory where your files are located and type rename *.exe *.rename_exe)
2. Include a file named Run Me First.cmd with the following text:
rename *.rename_exe *.exe
3. Zip the folder as usual and upload to deviantART.
