Files ending with .EXE are executable program files. You should be able to run them by double-clicking them. If this does not work, the file may be damaged or something on your PC is blocking the execution - that could be your anti-virus software, or perhaps even a virus. If you are getting errors running .EXE files, we strongly suggest you check your PC for errors and malware. On file.org we recommend checking your system with RegClean Pro. If you are sure the file is OK and your PC is virus free, it could be that you have downloaded a non-Windows .EXE file. Executable files for the Symbian operating system also uses the .EXE file extension.
Unfortunately we have not received enough suggestions for software that can open EXE files yet.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about the EXE file format or software that uses files with the EXE suffix, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
