Hello Ken

Unfortunately, the program Visual Basic 2008, is not compatible with Yola. Can you please let us know what you are wanting to do and perhaps we can come up with some alternatives for you?

No, I'm not trying to upload Visual Basic. I used VB to create a program, which I want to upload to my Yola site so others can use it. Does Yola support .exe or .zip?

Hi Ken,

Yola does not allow for .exe files to be uploaded. You can however upload .zip files.
