This file does not have a program association with it for performing this action

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Charles W Davis, Nov 7, 2009.

  1. Computer Club member's Windows Vista Home Premium.

    The message above says it all. No .exe file will run. I have drilled down to
    winword.exe, and double clicked. I have clicked icons on the desktop. I have
    clicked programs on the start menu. In safe mode, I have downloaded a new
    version of Windows Installer, when Run is clicked the subject message
    appears.

    When using Window Explorer, no .exe file has an icon associated with it!
    When I open Programs & Features in the Control Panel. Programs cannot be
    removed as the subject message appears.

    Any and all ideas would be appreciated.

  8. All has been fixed. The Club member had failed to provide a bit of
    information. On a re-boot there was a message that Word was still open???
    The she mentioned that when using Word she frequently got a message about
    Normal.dot file and she always responded in the negative. Now since the
    Outllook mail format options was set to Use Microsoft Office Word 2003 to
    edit e-mail messages. The answer was now clear... Fix the Normal dot dot
    file. All is now well.

  9. When one clicks on the mbam-setup.exe the subject message appears. I will
    give Dave-UK's suggestion a try.
