i’m installing from the guided install guide on the winsnort website, there is a
part here where it has me in the administrative command prompt, running the
snort_2_9_5_5_installer.exe in order to install snort, the problem is that the
file is not an executable, it is just a file and windows doesn’t know what to do
with it. I don’t know how to install it now, can someone help me out?

1. what is the exact name of the file you downloaded?

2. what is the exact name of the file you saved that downloaded file as?

3. what is the exact name of the file you are trying to execute?

4. what is telling you that the file is not an executable?
