You are saying that RR *won't* permit files of those types be transferred?
If I have that right, RR is whacked and you need to find another ISP.  
Apologies to RR right now if I got that wrong.

The first and most stupid suggestion would be to rename a .exe file
to .x or something, upload it and then rename it remotely.

Another alternative would be to get ssh for Windows (thats what you
use, I think?) and use the "sftp" encrypted ftp to move things.  It is
slower, however than a normal insecure ftp.

I'm hoping that you're crashing into some other problem and it isn't
that you aren't allowed to upload.
