  • I have windows 7 with ie10

    When I download a .exe file I get the option to "run save or cancel"

    cancel, save, save as, save & run all work

    run does not run I can see it click but nothing happens.

    I have reset ie10 to defaults still no luck.

    It works ok on my SBS2011 server but I cant see any differences between the ie10 settings.

    I have 4 windows 7 PC's all doing the same.

    The SBS2011 has the same antivirus (Symantec endpoint 12.1.2100) as the PC's

    anyone have any ides please

  • Depends on what type of exe file I suppose,

    Most of the time you would need to save/ Open location from the download folder,

    Then right click the exe file and Run as administrator.

    It also might be more straight forward to use Save target as and run as ....
