Ok, I did both now when I try to open this "Freeyoutube...Setup.exe" It states (message>>> It is not marked as an exe but it has an .exe extension to it. Also before it asked me what I want to open it with and I said WINE, even though I dont see it in wine as one of the programs I still got the above message.
