    ShellExecuteEx failed; code 203

    Hi,

    ShellExecuteEx is an important system routine function which may fail to communicate with a software installer. To get a better grasp of your query, kindly provide us the following:

    • Does the error only applies when you download a .exe file only?
    • To what web browser are you trying to download a certain file?
    We'll keep an eye out for your reply.
