Thread: File Extensions

  1. #1
    I have just downloaded a 698MB file which has a .exe extension. I have checked the file to make sure that it is not infected by any virus and it is OK. However when I come to run the program nothing happens, I mean I don't even get an error message.

    Could someone tell me what the problem is?

    is the full file extension *.iso.exe?

    if so you can take off the *.exe portion and mount the *.iso file with a program called daemon tools

    more info on mounting and images can be found on the forum

    no, the file is just an .exe extension. I have tried to rename the extension to various other extensions including .iso and .zip that hasn&#39;t worked out either.

    what&#39;s the filename and where did you get it from?

    If it&#39;s realy an .exe and nothing happens the file you&#39;ve d/l-ed may be corrupted. Just to be sure uncheck the Hide known files extensions and check again. (dunno if it&#39;s called that way, it&#39;s in Folder options, View (second if the name is wrong) tab.

    Posting more info would help a lot. What were you trying to download? What&#39;s the filename? Where did you get it from?

    use norton antivirus - if there is a virus being downloaded normally
    norton gives you a message and take the file in quarantine during download&#33;

    But he said that he checked the file and it&#39;s clean.

    I assume that the file is crrupted and needs to be redownloaded or it&#39;s somekind of a fake. I had such problems, though with smaller (200-300 MB) files.

    Sorry for the slowness in responding to you all....

    The file that I have downloaded is called flt-halo.exe. When I was downloading it the size showed up as 715,534KB. Now that the file s is downloaded if I click on the propertise, it says that the size of the file is 698MB.
