Try zipping the executable.

When it gets to the other end the contents of the zipped file will need to be extracted into the same folder as the other pieces.

An option that I use is a file splitter that breaks the file into chunks then reassembles them at the other end:

Doing it this way means you don't get any loss in quality through compression. Just takes a little more time.

Post it to a free file sharing site, then send out a link to whoever it is you want to view it.

Here's a free file sharing site to try - no account sign on necessary:
http://www.zippyshare.com/

There might be a file size imitation but it takes no time to put it up there and see. If it works out it gives you an address (URL) which you can pass to whoever wants the file.

EDIT:
Just out of interest I zipped an AVI and it came out at about half size.

Another way would be to convert it to a compressed video file type such as mp4 which would probably be smaller than a zip. You would obviously need to find a free and safe file converter to do this.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Well, I tryed it" G-split," and found that sure enough one can e-mail through out look express, but, for" one thing" only!. YOU can e-mail the Pieces 2,3,4,5 etc. BUT the main Piece called or LABLED "Excute 1" will not go through, The E-Mail folks will not allow it to go through, they BLOCK IT. So how do you get around this, Have someone who your e-mailing too. download the G-Split program and Drag Drop the Exucute Symbole into the File"FOLDER" they receive from the e-mails to put in? OR WHAT,? How do you reassemble the AVI file if the Main Part :Execute #1 will not go with it.?
This part I can't figure out. YOUR help is needed.

The Zip works , but the Internet Explore will not allow the file to be opened. that simple. can't use someother browser because the outlook express is only for Internet Explorer. Go figure. the rock and the hard place. lol
After Beating the crap out of the keyboards and cussing for at least 30 minutes to an hour, I finaly got the dam program to work. I want to tell Microsoft to stick their Operating System up their Ass.
Thanks for your help ,,,,Everyone.

Sorry it turned into an ordeal for you, but happy you made it work in the end.

In hindsight a file sharing site as suggested by riider and Derek might have been the best option for you.

Thanks for the follow-up.

"I want to tell Microsoft to stick their Operating System up their Ass"

It's not an OS problem, it's a user problem.

When an email is too large to send it is normally a server restriction. Not much to do with MS or even the user.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
