  1. Why can't I open an installer file?


    I downloaded a file that when opened id supposed to prompt you with an installer wizard, but no matter what app I use to "Open" it it either re-downloads a duplacit, or tells me I need admin permissions. I am the admin, and have no other accounts linked to this PC My photo files and alike open just fine but I'm having problems with this installer. Can anybody help please?

    since this happens in some of the computers only, suggest that you open the file on working computer and copy everything and paste to a new powerpoint file.
