Desktop app for Win 10 Miro.exe file!?!?!?

Hi all:

 

Does anyone know why the desktop app by Miro is an .exe file and it does not install on your PC? So meaning I have opened the app numerous times, and have a shortcut I created in my taskbar at bottom. But if I delete the .exe downloaded file, the shortcut no longer works. Seems really odd.

 

Thank you!

Yes i don’t like saving exe files in my backups as a general rule of thumb. 

 

And my original post said …

@Brian Royce - I don’t know much about these sorts of things.

For context, why are you asking? Is there something that isn’t working? Is there a problem that you are trying to solve? I am genuinely curious, as may be other readers.

Right, so there’s no way to just install it?

@Brian Royce - One reason it is set up the way it is would be that it can be downloaded and used without having to be an admin on the PC.
