I am having a little problem.
How can I execute an application 

	Binary Executable (application/octet-stream) (exe,bin)

immediately after download it from the Internet through a Browser, without 
saving it to disk?

The goal is to install automatically a software package, running first 
the setup application. I know that this could be dangerous in security 
terms. But this case, is a particular case, where I know what software 
pack I will run.

I need this preferentially for Windows Environments.
If someone could help me, I'll appreciate.

Thanks in advance,

Francisco Pinto
