Which program do I need for this file? Answered

Facebook tells me that before I upload any new picture, I have to install their new plug-in, so I have saved the installing file and everything is fine.....

UNTIL I try to open the install file and Windows 7 doesn't recognise the file format, and I am equally lost in this matter.

Can anyone tell me which program would be suitable for opening this file in? And if you know of one, is there a way that I can (Legitimately) get hold of it?

If you need any more information, please post a response below.

Thanks :D

Thanks anyway!

....I would be VERY cautious of any plugins you get from facebook.  

You need flash installed, and maybe java, but nothing more...

It's safe, Facebook is slowly rolling out a new photo uploader.

ha, I remember doing stuff like this for emailing programs or .rar files to friends, just change a letter of the extension and tell them to change it back,

Yea you got it. The file extension was unassociated with any Windows application. However, what is this .exe? A lot of dodgy-turds float around the internet...
