When I was on Vista and I downloaded a program, I always chose the "Run" option instead of "Save." I'd rather not clutter up my desktop or My Documents folder so this option worked nicely. Once the program was finishing saving to my temporary internet folder, the program itself would launch and then I could go through the install process.
Now that I have upgraded to Windows 7, I have noticed that if I choose the "Run" option the program will download and then close. It never launches or "pop up" so that I can continue the install process. This has forced me to choose the "Save" option instead. It's not a huge deal as I usually just save the program to my Desktop and then delete once I install the program.
Just curious as to why this is happeening. Could not really find any threads online about this problem. Has this function changed in Windows 7? Or is there some way I can edit my download options so that programs launch once they have installed? I know I can uncheck the "close this dialog box once download completes" but I never had to do that in the past. I usually keep this option checked so that when I download music I don't have to close each dialog box.
