I'm trying to run WPE Pro on my computer. I downloaded it today and when i try to run it from winrar i get this:
! Cannot execute "C:\Users\???\AppData\Local\Temp\Rar$EX15.9484\WPE PRO.exe"
I don't know why it wont let me run it. Should i turn off my anti-virus software?? Any ideas???

Did you download it from their official website here: http://wpepro.net/in...hp?categoryid=9?

It appears that they package in a .zip.


Try using 7zip: http://www.7-zip.org/. Unlike winRAR it is a free program and doesn't apply limitations to those who don't pay them money.

I just downloaded it and extracted using 7zip.

Lets take this step by step.

Save the compessed folder to Documents.

Right click on it -> 7zip -> Extract Files... -> click OK

Are you having any other issues with compressed folders?

Edit: Hopefully that is the same in Vista as it is in XP.

Did you download the zip again?

You could try to use the extracter that is built in to Windows. Right click on the compressed folder and select Extract All.

Alright that leaves me with two guesses:

a) Compressed folder is getting corrupt when you download it. Possibly a firewall issue but this not likely.

b) Something security related on your machines is recognizing this program as malware which in turn is preventing you from doing anything with it.


Try disabling the security features on your computer (only temporarily!).
