    Hello Friend ,

    You are having a problem that can not run .exe file in windows xp.

    This kind of problem may be occur due to two reason ..

    It should be possible that windows installer not enable into your windows xp.

    You have to check it from system configuration.

    Second problem should be your system highly affect with virus.

    You have to clean your system with anti virus software.

    and then trying to install this file.

    I hope you will understand.

    Hi Friend,

    >> The Problem is .exe file can be opened.

    >> Some registry setting is affected in the system.

    >> So you need to change the registry setting in the system.

    >> Open Run Command and type "regedit"

    >> Then Open H_KEY_CLASSES_ROOT.

    >> Now click on .exe

    >> Then change the default value option.

    >> That's it.

    I Hope you will understand.

    All The Best.
