    Somebody asked in a thread how they can create an exe to launch an affiliate URL, which can be binded to exe's uploaded to torrent sites.
    I knocked this up to launch any url specified in it's filename.

    To use it, follow these simple steps...

    1. Encode your affiliate URL, using a free online URL encoder, such as this one (no affiliation):

    2. Rename the exe to ENCODEDSTRING.exe, for example:


    3. Bing the exe to torrents etc. When it's run, the affiliate page opens up!

    This was written in Visual Studio 2008. I'm a noob with this, so it took me ages. I'm not trying to sell anything, just trying to give something back to the community. I've included the source so you can add to it and compile it yourself.
    'Thanks' welcomed greatly :D
