7-Zip trying to open my .exe prog. installers

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I just downloaded Firefox to install.  When I click on the icon to install, 7-zip opens a tiny error window saying it cannot extract?

    I tried uninstalling 7-zip & searched/deleted all reg. entries- same error. 

    Help, please??

      I made a mistake-

      it said "unspecified error"- I reinstalled 7-zip & get the same error- it will not let me run the Firefox .exe?  Other .exe's work.

      Hello TF,

      Although I'm not at your computer, I think: right-click on .exe file > open, should work.
