    Default cannot Install binary package from .run installer

    I'm probably missing something fundamentally simple but, when i try installing a .run file with either sudo ./ or sh i get the same message "cannot execute binary file". The file is set as executable, and I’ve also tried chmod +x. How can I tell if its a fault with the package or if i am missing some other necessary packages?

    Please do not tell stories alone, but show us computer facts. E.g. you do not (only) say: the file is executable, but you post something like
    Code:
    henk@boven:~/bin> ls -l mmcheck 
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 henk wij 19126 23 jan  2011 mmcheck
    henk@boven:~/bin>
    (that is the prompt, the command, the output and the next prompt, between CODE tags, which you get by clicking on the # button in the tool bar of the post editor).

    Same when you try to run it. We can then see for ourselves what you do and what you get without your interpretation of the facts. Your conclusions may differ from ours.

    BTW. the following information might also help:
    Code:
    file the-filename-you-kept-as-a-secret-to-us.run

    Henk thanks for replying,

    Output as requested:
    Code:
    sean@linux-sc34:~/KBmaster> ls -l kbmaster-0.4.3-linux-x64-installer.run
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 sean users 167190992 May 15 20:35 kbmaster-0.4.3-linux-x64-installer.run
    sean@linux-sc34:~/KBmaster> sh kbmaster-0.4.3-linux-x64-installer.run
    kbmaster-0.4.3-linux-x64-installer.run: kbmaster-0.4.3-linux-x64-installer.run: cannot execute binary file
    I’ve never seen or used " ls -l" before in this way. Thanks for sharing that. Im an architect and property developer not a computer hacker. Ask me how to build a new housing development or a question on UK property or contract law, put together a multi million pound property deal or joint venture, well then I might be able to patronise you right back. I love linux and hate windows, but I am too busy doing other stuff to learn everything about it. I’ve been using Linux for 10 years and I get by with a lot of googling. Sometimes I have to risk being patronised by coming onto a forum to find something I couldn’t find myself.

    Thankyou.

    Thanks for posting the info.. Missing is the
    Code:
    file kbmaster-0.4.3-linux-x64-installer.run
    This will show you what the type of the file is (remember that it's name having a suffix .run does not realy mean anything, in any case not to the Linux system).

    You seem to think that it is a shell script. I do not know why you think so. Is there any installation document coming with this product? Something that tells you how to call that kbmaster-0.4.3-linux-x64-installer.run?
