Was wondering if anyone here'ss experienced the same problem as me.  When I completed the download of the student version I get asked if its ok for me to open the fille.  After pressing ok it asks me what program I want to open it with.

Should I have some kind of program to open it up? I'm rocking windowns 7 and downloaded


Can't look into the file to run setup or anything, it just asks what program to use to open it up.


Any help would be awsome, pulling my hair out abit here!

Found the solution in an earlier post.  Rename the file type ending it with .exe and it will launch.  Apologies for being retarded.
