.exe file classification.

Hi Folks,
my image shows a file I have on another part of my pc. The original date is 2014 when I d/l it from MS.

If I zipped the file and posted it here, would it be classed as pirated and/or illegal material.

If you are referring to this, their is no problem showing them on this forum.
They are free from Microsoft if your Windows 7 is licensed properly.

If your asking about sharing the file for others who want to download it, I suggest uploading it to a cloud based storage service and pointing them to the file.

I'm not sure if this is against Microsoft's EULA.

You can't post it here as you are not licensed to distribute the file, so technically it would be piracy.
