HowTo Fix: The file ‘/path/file.exe’ is not marked as executable.

The file ‘/path/file.exe’ is not marked as executable.  If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run.  For more details, read about the executable bit.

While re-installing Spotify on my Desktop I came across this error while trying to run the .exe through wine (shown above) and here’s a really simple way of fixing it:

  1. Right click the .exe
  2. Properties
  3. Under the Permssions tab make sure “Allow executing file as program” is checked
  4. Click Close and you should be able to now run it through wine..
