    Exe file slow to open

    A SFX archive isn't going to open right away. The files have to be extracted first. When you are opening it in WinRar, it's not extracting the file, it's just reading it which is why it opens right away.

    How to open a .exe file

    Hi,

    An EXE file (also known as executable file) contains an executable program for Windows. EXE is short for "executable," and it is the standard file extension used by Windows programs.

    For us to better assist you with this, we'd like to know the following:

    • Were you getting an error when opening a .exe file?
    • Was it compressed (zipped)?

    Usually, you can just double left-click the .exe file (if not compressed) to open it. However, if it's compressed, you need to install a 3rd party software to extract it.

    We're looking looking forward to your reply.
