    I downloaded a "Code" which is for a certain program I want to use, but instead of there being an exe file or installer or anything, there is a readme that doesnt say anything of value, and an FRX file, a VPB file, a FRM file, and a BAS file. How can I use these files to run the program I want to run?

    I think he means moving them to the folder of that certain program you have installed on your computer.

    You download source files, you want to download a binary (executable). Go Back to where you downloaded it from and see if one is available, if not get somebody to compile it for you or seek an alternative.

    Alright, I will have to ask my friend, if he ever gets online. There is no executable for it.


    Then is there anyone that will compile them for me?
