    Re: Unable to Run .exe files in Windows 8.1

    Hello Friend ,

    You are having a problem that can not run .exe file in windows 8.1

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

    It should be possible that windows installer not enable into your windows 8.1

    You have to check it from system configuration by search msconfig.

    Second problem should be your system highly affect with virus or spyware

    You have to clean your system with anti virus software.

    and then trying to install this file into your windows 8.1.

    I hope you will understand.

    All the Best
