Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This handy application allows you to run executables without hunting down shortcuts or using Task Manager or Explorer, but it's limited by having no other features that might make it more competitive. It has a small, simple interface with a few basic buttons and a text box, but it has no help file. Priority Executioner lets you run executables in either Real Time or High priority modes. High priority is appropriate for memory-intensive programs such as games to dedicate its resources. In our tests, Priority Executioner worked accurately, but it closed the interface immediately after performing its operation; you must launch it again for subsequent uses. The program doesn't have a minimize button, but it has a History feature for displaying a list of files executed. Those who want to run executable files easily will find this freeware worth downloading.
