i downloaded a firmware upgrade for my DVD writer.

 

tried dl'ing several times but windows has no association to the file so of course reason why it has no icon. so it wont execute.

so i get the "Open With" option but i dont know what to open it with.

 

so what file in windows can i point it to in order to open the executable file??

using Vista x64

Is it really a ---.exe file?

If so, it should execute itself.

 

If it is a ---.bin or ---.inf , then you may be able to use Device Manager and select to update your DVD writer Driver, pointing to the new firmware file when prompted.

 

Clear as mud?

You really haven't provided any information that would be useful in solving the problem.  Please provide a link to the page from which you downloaded the file.  If updates for more that one DVD burner are on the page, state the model of DVD drive you want to update.

obviously its a registry or some other windows corruption where its not showing an association...so wheres the file in windows directory i can point it to in order to open it is what i'm asking.

have you tried a system restore......go back before this problem occurred

 

though i failed to mention every detail i've tried...i have already tried that before posting.

 

what i'd like to know is what file in windows opens the .exe. is it the windows installer? where is it?

Removing the comma just like badbob suggested worked for me. Went to the link you posted and downloaded the file, and it looked just like the one in the screen shot you posted. Then I removed the comma from the end and I got this,
