Default Download an exe file from server to Client

My situation is like this.
I have an exe file in my server. When the user click the download link I should be downloading the exe into client's m/c. How can I achieve this.

Thanks in advance for any sincere help.

There is prabably plenty of advice on this subject out there, so take a look around but I tend to zip up any downloads and just link straight to them as a zip.
Trying to download an exe is risky business and most antivirus programs will make it a nightmare, with good reason.

They say, best men are moulded out of faults,
And, for the most, become much more the better
For being a little bad.
