Hello and thanks ^^

I have. And it's notebook indeed. I don't know, maybe it matters.

I'm not using any.

I got this computer few days ago. And also a new windows, so I'm not oriented in this at all.

Where are you running it from? the shortcut on the desktop? or the .exe itself in the installation folder?

Now, I tried from the installation folder and it shows another chart:
"to open this file system windows has to know what program you want to use, to open this file. You want to go online and find the program automaticcaly or choose it from the list of programs alredy installed on the computer"

And your trying to run the exe?

Think it may be a program relationship problem.

Need to set the .exe extension to open with windows.

Although this isn't my area of expertise, so I'm afraid to say i can't help you any further, but I'm sure some of the other members may be able to help you.
