FaqWindowsDownloadName

When I download the NetBeans installer for Windows, the file lacks the "exe" extension and won't run. How can I run the installer?

When using Internet Explorer to download the NetBeans installer for Windows, the download might be blocked and the ".exe" might be removed from the file name. If you complete the download, the file might not be executable on Windows.

Workaround: At the start of the download process, add ".exe" to the file name, then proceed with saving it in your local file system.

Example: Change "netbeans-6.0.1-ml-windows" to "netbeans-6.0.1-ml-windows.exe".
