What am I doing wrong?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Im always having problems accesing stuff ive downloaded, so what am I doing wrong?
I have downloaded autoroute and when I try to open it I get the message: autoroute.exe is not a valid win32 application.

So why is this happening ? and if im trying to download a programme should I be looking for something before I even try to download ? Obviously I know to check that its for my operating system windows 98 but anything else apart from that.

Thanks in advance.......thats if you have the balls to try and get me to understand, cos we all know im not too clever in this department :lol::lol:

    Is the application installed properly?

    Also if you downloaded it from a dodgy site then theres not much chance it will work anyway.

    sounds like you'll have to download it again. this happens to me sometimes and i never fully understand it ...i think you will find that re downloading it might well put things right.

    Emmm let me think.

    When you try to use it, make sure kazaa is closed and that nothing would be using the file, then double click it and see what happens.

    When you download something, always look for a file called either:

    setup.exe
    install.exe
    Or alternatively autoroute.exe

    I recognise that win32 error but cant remember what it is and i bet its so simple, damn it.

    Emm try all the usual checks like its compatible with your version of windows and you have the right hardware specification and stuff for it. Sorry i couldnt be more help.
