Normally binary files are not MS executable. Other OS's can possibly use binary files. Bin2exec will not help.

My guess is you downloaded a linux OS version.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I think jefro meant "bin2exe" which is an old DOS file which converted binary to exe. As he said that it wouldn't help I wouldn't worry about it.

You need to check that you downloaded a Vista program, or at least a Microsoft one. As already stated by others, it is most likely that you downloaded a Linux version - they commonly use the terminology "binaries" for their program files.

I don't believe any such thing exists.

The Microsoft system structure is quite different to Linux. If the programs you downloaded were for Linux, then a "file converter" would not be nearly enough (even if one existed).

You could try "CDBurnerXP" instead of Nero but I have no idea about any equivalent to Daemon Tools - Google might help.

By the way, Vista "is" a Microsoft Operating System.

"URI formats are not supported" is a webpage coding issue (see Google).
I know little about webpage scripting so cannot help personally - maybe someone else can.

Is this error related to the two programs you downloaded? If so, can you say whether they were intended run on a Microsoft Windows system, or provide links to the download websites please? With this information we might better understand what is going on, as it could throw a completely different light on the issue.

"i do not think the program works". That statement tells us nothing about what it did or didn't do. I'm using CDBurnerXP (on XP) and it works fine. Your link confirms it should run on Vista too.

Anyhow, try one of jefro's suggestions and if there is any problem let us know "exactly" what happens or does not happen.

Also Do I need to burn the binary file to a cd for it to work?

Re your #14. I'll leave jefro to comment on the programs he suggested.

For CDBurnerXP you just double click the downloaded exe file and install it. The program then runs from an icon or the start menu, in the normal way. You don't have to put the download onto a CD first.

Change/rename the extension from .bin to .iso & mount the image.
