Then it's not a Windows EXE file.
This answer from xpcman has been of no value whats-so-ever. If xpcman thinks he is helping my plea for help, he is badly mistaken and should refrain from answering any more pleas for help!

I need need a solution for solving my download program in Windows Vista 32 bit OS, in Chrome. The download folder displays the file, however, when I press "Open" it just keeps repeating and repeating.... A friend suggested that I uninstall/reinstall Google Chrome.. Please advise..

Hold on here! Xpcman's answer was based on the very little information you provided as a matter of a fact your request is difficult to understand. I would have answered the same as Xpcman. Xpcman is one of the best on this forum.

Specifically what download app were you referring to, certainly it must have a name? There is no such thing as a download programme, just a default download folder.

What is it that your are trying to press ? Do you mean press or click ? What is it that you have downloaded and from where? What is it that keeps repeating?

If you wish help, you must clearly and completely explain the issue with all the pertinent details.

Regards

Hi Ambucias,
Thanks for your reply to my message of 6/06/2016. I will do my best to explain this most perplexing issue... OS = Windows Vista 32bit.
Browser = Google Chrome. "Default Download Folder". Trying to download a theme, an eBook, an application. The downloads do appear in the default download folder, however when I click on Open nothing happens. More recently, when I try and download anything the download just keeps on repeating. To stop this repeating, I have to completely shut down the action. What ever has downloaded shows up in the Default Download Folder with the name of the file and a (1) or (2) after the file name... If I don't stop this action, there could be as many as 25 repetitions in the download folder. I have since completely deleted the entire default download folder (it is now blank). Can you please provide a remedy for this...

Don

The app you are trying to run will only for on mobiles such as tablets.
