I have an .exe file in my tools, downloads but cannot open the file to install it.


In Firefox for Android, I can open tools, downloads & see the .exe file that I want to install but when I highlight it to install it, the highlight blinks off. How do I install this software to my Samsung Tab 2?

Additional System Details


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0

.exe files only work on the Windows platform and not on Android OS.

What kind of program are you trying to install?

Adobe Reading Elements. I have since been advised by Samsung that they don't support Flash Player & consequently this software. I am now working with MontanaLibrary2Go.org on a way to get around this.

You can download an archived version of Flash from Adobe. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-watch-flash-videos-firefox-android
