Occasional Contributor

Recently, I updated the Windows11 version to the latest one, which is 22000.168 co_release. After updating to this version, I found that I can't install applications directly from exe. file so guys anyone know what's going on and how could I fix this problem? :thinking_face:

Did you received any error message that you can provide to us?
Nope, I didn't receive any error message while opening the exe. file. When I open the file, it shows the loading icon and nothing happens. That's what I saw everytime I tried to install the app. This situation only occur on one exe. file. The app I wanted to download is DrJava. I tried to reinstall other apps and everything is fine, only installing the DrJava app brings the issue.
Try to right-click the executable file and change the compatibility to Windows 7 to see whether you can run this program.
Also, make sure you have installed Java Runtime Environment with 1.5 or above.
How can I check my version of Java Runtime Environment?

You can check the Java RE via Control Panel or Program and Features. If you are installed with old version or not install Java RE I would suggest you go to Oracle website to download latest version of Java 8 and install then you should be able to run DrJava without issue.

Hi, I can't open one specific .exe file

that same file working fine in another computer

it's a launcher for a game, but there is no error code or anything.

Since it's not opening at all on this computer, i thought the problem might be similar? Thanks
