If I downloaded a theme (or anything else) with a .exe file in it I wouldn’t trust the files. Full stop.

Besides that, is this a desktop application or a web application? If it’s desktop then you’re really restricting your customer base to Windows users, probably not the best idea. If it’s a web application it doesn’t need to be a .exe file.

I think .exe is a no-go in your files. Just find another way to help your customers. Include a good documentation for example.

Why exactly would you need your buyers to access an .exe file for editing a web template?

I’m 99.9% sure you’re not allowed to do that here.
