Thanks 'lipse...Maybe that is where I remember it from.by Pete (no login)
I haven't worked on my XP in over 6-months. I booted it up just now to try that and can confirm what 'lipse posted; yes, you do have to type in the extension but it will run any extension as an exe.
There have been some Command Line additions in XP, apparently, this is one of them. For a 9x, Michael was correct in stating that DOS will not run or recognize an exe with say a .jnk extension; however, XP will.
