How to install a macro?

I would like to install a macro from this page:

 

https://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Solid-Edge-Forum/Update-Views-on-Selected-Sheets/td-...

 

I dont know how to install this macro. Search did not reveal anything useful.

 

The zip file only contains a .png file and a .ex_ file.

 

Can someone explain, or post a link to a page, telling how to  install this type of macro?

EXE macros must have Solid Edge running.  You either can start them by running them from Windows Explorer, or you can customize your Ribbon and add a Macro button that references the EXE.
