  1. The files are probably not really unix executable files at all, and they certainly won’t be if they came from Windows.

    Mac computers will always identify a file as a “unix executable” if it doesn’t know what application is required to open it. This is usually because the file has no filename extension (the three letters to the right of the dot).

    If you can add the correct extension to the filename, your Mac should then know what application to use to open it.
