This app can't run on your PC [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

I can still run old exe files on my Windows 10.

It does come up with a warning & if you select More...

Then you can choose 'Run Anyway'

If you still have problems then right click & choose run as administrator

That used to be the case.

Don't get 'More' anymore and run as administrator makes no difference. I've also gone into File Properties and tried all the security and compatibility options.

Yes, I do get the 'More' for all those shows and they run fine.

As I said, these are old shows. Ver7.?.?. No 'More' and just won't run.

It's funny though because I just went back to my very first PTE show,which, believe it or not, was created in August 2006, and it does run.

[edit] In fact I just created a show with version 7.5.10 and it runs, so I'm stuck for explanations.

The most likely, those old EXE files were damaged. So Windows can't recognize a valid EXE file.

If those shows are important for you, I can tell you about a workaround to run them (if resources in an EXE file were not damaged too).

Thanks Igor.

I do still have all the project files archived somewhere, so I can rebuild the EXE show.

I suspect you are right and the file is corrupt somehow. I just got spooked about the survivability of the old shows. Creating a HD video file for archiving has been part of my process but just in recent years.
