Hello JP,

This is an .exe (executable/application) file. Since it says setup, I'm assuming it's to install some program?

Are you having any issues running any other programs on your computer.

No,Mr Brink, i had issues with only this kind of files.
I Had some video files with same format.
For a video file,iam unable to open it but by opening VLC media player and dragging on to it,VLC is playing file(say DOS Video file).
But i was unable to find solution for executable files,Why??

If this is only happening to .exe files, then you might see if downloading and merging the .reg file for the listed .exe option in the tutorial below may help.
