Yea, MS says to call it an "application file". And that works fine IF your
audience is PC--literate. But Jon's audience is not. And to top it off,
English is not their first language.

I'd call it "an entry in the directory" or something like that. I don't
think application file or program file is going to mean anything to the
audience unless you lay a lot of ground work first. And if this procedure is
a one-time setup, or something that's infrequently executed, I think you can
get by with being vague.

Unless you want to tip your hat to MrGates, and then, by all means, be
MS-compliant.
Cheers!!
