Ok, guys...question:

A section of the document I'm working on is for the
Installation of a program. The audience is probably
novice, not PC-literate, and may never have installed
an application before. English is not their first
language for any of them.

Background: If a certain abnormal event occurs during
the installation, they need to run one of the
processes manually. Therefore, I have a paragraph:

"Step 1: In the directory
C:\Program\<ApplicationName>, you will find a ???
named mdac_typ.exe. Run this ??? by clicking it once
to highlight it, then press the [Enter] key on your

Result: This will run the ???."

My question...what do you call an .exe file that is
not the main executable.

Windows Explorer calls it an "Application". By it
being an .exe, it is a "Program". OTOH, it is really
just a "File".

Any takers?
