I have downloaded executables using both Chrome and Firefox and I can run any of them - I am also having problems running them from a Windows folder

My problem started when an existing application Justcloud would not start - so I contacted teir support and they told me to reinstall - I downloaded and could not intall - I also tried to delete the original program which has been working for months only to find it apparently wasn't on the list of installed programs

Are you getting any errors or does the installer simply not start?
