I have a exe.file that I want to upload into the images section of Silverstripe, but for some reason it can't upload, because Silverstripe doesn't accept it. Anyway, it's an exe.file, and it should be accepted, but maybe it has something to do with the extension. I don't know. Anyway, is there a way to upload this file into Silverstripe?

You probably need to add exe to the allowed_extensions. Its not there by default. Put this in your config file

File::$allowed_extensions[] = 'exe';

I have a related issue. I was able to get Uplodify working with executable files but they won't show up in the CMS folders. That makes linking to them a little difficult for some of my users. Is there a way that SS will show .exe and .msi files in the file tree?
