Exe file support broken on my install?

Post by DuckZGamer9122 »

I tried to install a few exe files but I get an error saying it isn't a valid win 32 program.
Any ideas? :?:

Which exe files? 32 bit or 64 bit?
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes

You are definitely trying to run either 16 or 64 bit exe files. They won't run on reactos. Try to find some 32bit alternatives. Most 64bit apps are still offered as 32bit installers too.

Seems to me like the installer needs vista+, to make sure try installing them on a winxp machine
