Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

An EXE file is an executable program file. You don’t usually open these you run them as a program. You might find a decompiler that may let you see what is inside but I wouldn’t count on it.

    The query is not completed. Is it your office/for a personal use. What errors shown there? Is there any antivirus program, check if that prevents to execute them. Also check firewall settings. Probably, the EXE corrupted/damaged or not compatible to run on the OS (assuming it is windows). Also check either is it 32-bit or 64-bit processor.

    Personal use. No error message. File does not open. Scanned with anti-virus program. OK - Windows 10 & 64-bit processor. Don't know what the firewall settings should be.

    If possible, run this same file on another laptop/PC and check if it works. Also if that EXE file doesn't require internet connection during executing, you can try to run in safe mode.

    I called the source where I downloaded the file and they did something on their end and the file opened and was installed. Thank you all for your help. Carl.
