Vista - Unable to launch .exe files

October 2017


  • Upon double clicking on any of the .exe on my PC, instead of launching the application, I'm getting the "Open With" feature, prompting me to open the file:
  • With a web application or to select the default program !


  • For all your .exe file to work again:
  • Double click on exefix_vista.reg, accepts the modification made in the registery!
  • Then restart the computer normally and all .exe files should work again.
