Windows Installer in Windows Home Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to install Apache http server within Home Server. The exe file will not open because it is not a recognized file type. My assumption is that I just need windows installer, but all the versions I have tried will not install. 3.1 says that I have a newer version so it wont install, but according to windows I dont have the windows installer.

    I'm sure there is a simple answer that I just overlooked.  Maybe there's a different installer I could use?

    As always, thank you for the help.

  • Hello,
    if an exe file cannot be opened, it is either no real exe file or it is a damaged (not properly downloaded) file.
    Or it may be execution is blocked, because you still did not allow access to the file. Right click on it, select Properties and click Allow to grant access to the file.
