I’m trying to run a setup.exe file to install a program that I copied over my home network from my laptop to my MyBookLive external hard drive. During the copy process I got the following message:
“Are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties? The file setup.exe has properties that can’t be copied to the new location.”
When I click "Yes’ and then try to run the exe file from the WD external drive, I get the following error message:
“ShellExecuteEx failed; Code 87. The parameter is incorrect.”
If I copy the same file to the hard drive of my desktop computer over the network and run it from there, it runs fine and I can do the program install.
Why does copying the file to my external drive strip properties from the file that disables the file from running?
