Executable file format (EXE) is a file extension that consists of a program that is able to run as a program in the computer. It can be executed via order or just a double-click. We have distinctive types of executable files such as COM and BAT.
EXE files are executable programs, but they can containn resources, such as bitmap graphics and icons. For example, if you get an EXE file via e-mail, make sure that the file comes from a secure source and it does not consist of virus.
In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .EXE file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:
A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .EXE file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .EXE file, so download the update and check again.
If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:
It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
