    Another incidental uniqueness of .EXE files is that they always begin with the letters MZ or ZM, after the initials of the Microsoft programmer (Mark Zbikowsky) who developed the .EXE file structure

    I tried the smallest .exe file I found on my drive, and it contained this:

    Code:
    .OPTION EXPLICIT
    .Set CabinetNameTemplate=SWDIR.CAB 
    .Set Cabinet=on
    .Set Compress=on
    ;Reserve space for PKS#7 Code Signature
    .Set ReservePerCabinetSize=4096
    ..\source\swdir.inf
    ..\source\SwDir.dll
    ..\source\Dirapi.dll
    ..\source\Idle32.exe
    ..\source\Iml32.dll
    ..\source\xtras\Swadcmpr.x32
    ..\source\xtras\Swastrm.x32
    ...No MZ or ZM at all...

    Is that a real exec. file, or what?
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.

    You're right... I feel so dumb now... but it's not the first time

    Here's what I get:

    (path/filename.exe) is not a valid Win32 application.

    Thanks though... guess it was just named ".exe"...

    looks like a VB file...maybe a macro for word or something.
