Vista - Unable to launch .exe files

March 2017




Issue

  • 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 !

Solution

  • For all your .exe file to work again: exefix_vista.zip
  • 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.
