After a long time, I thought of sharing this simple steps to the community. The title will tell the requirement. i.e., by default, SharePoint does not allow the end user to Upload the Executable into SharePoint Document Library. We need to make a small settings change in the Central Administration level.

Let see that step by step.

1. Go To Central Administration.

2. Select the Security Tab.

3. Under General Security, Click on the “Define Blocked file Types”.

4. The screen comprises the Change Web Application option and the list of files listed on a list box. Select the web application appropriately.

5. Then in the List Items, delete the EXE and MSI Files (Here each file extension is separated/listed in each lines).

6. Let me remove the EXE and MSI.

7. Click on OK.

8. That’s it. Now, if we try upload EXE in the Web Application, your system will allow you to upload.

The default other blocked file extensions are

ade

adp

asa

ashx

asmx

asp

bas

bat

cdx

cer

chm

class

cmd

cnt

com

config

cpl

csh

shb

shs

shtm

shtml

soap

stm

svc

url

vb

vbe

vbs

vsix

ws

wsc

wsf

wsh

xamlx

The above steps are common for the WebApplication. There is no option, that a single document library can accept this. This is a generic settings.

Happy Coding,
