You're trying to run something that is not a valid program.
There could be several reasons for this:
- The file is corrupted.
- The file was not written for Windows.
- The file is not a program but perhaps a data file.

What is the exact name of the file? Where did it come from?

If this is downloaded software, the download may be incomplete.
Disable any proxy server and try again. If the software comes on CD,
either the CD or the drive might be bad. This problem may also be
caused by a virus.
