    But that program is for a PC and not an iPad. PC programs won't run on an iPad.

    The only games and apps available for a non-jailbroken iPad are in the Apple App Store. Nothing else can possibly be made to run on an iPad. So, if it's not in the App Store, it's simply not available.

    Trying to get a PC or Mac program to run on an iPad is simply technically impossible. It's like trying to get a regular petrol/gas car/automobile to run on diesel fuel. It's impossible - there's simply no way around it.

    I'm sorry but only programs/apps downloaded from the iPad App Store will run on the iPad. A .exe file is for a PC and simply cannot run on the iPad. It really is completely impossible. An iPad cannot load or execute a .exe file, it's a different microprocessor, different instruction set, different operating system...

    Re Expat Shield on an Ipad. Expat Shield cannot be installed on an IPad, however there is a free UK VPN service (just Google BestUKVPN) which you can use. This allows you to watch IPlayer outside of the UK.
    Full instructions for the IPad setup are included in their FAQ section.
    Their 4 digit password changes quite often so you need to bookmark their site to check it each time you log on.
    It is reasonably fast - I get around 1.5 Mb download here in Spain which is just about okay for BBC IPlayer

    Why don't you install FilmonHD app and you're good to go. Or just open their web page in Safari.
