    I'm not here to argue but with all due respect there seems to be some confusion on your part. Any downloaded program (exe, zip) when right clicked will have a "General" tab as exampled in the image I provided so I'm not sure what file you're looking at.

    And as I said, if the General tab does not show an Unblocked box, no need to worry about it. The point is "IF" there is an Unblock box, it needs to be checked. If not, don't worry about it.

    As for this....


    So when you say this....


    Where did you get the program from??? If you downloaded it provide a link (show us) the download site.
    I am not arguing.

    Is this the link?

    OK, for clarity... right click the file, click Properties, go to the General tab (if not shown)…

    Apparently I neglected to mention when you right click the file you need to go to Properties then click the General tab if not shown. Sorry, I thought this was understood.

    Anyway as I said, "if" the unblock box isn't there no need to worry about it and my suggestion is invalid.

    Good luck.

    I missed it because every link I right click in the downloading sequence never gets me General Window in the Audio Workshop PC zip Properties window.

    Tell me at what point I am to "right click" the file, because, at every step, if I am able, I right click the file, and nothing close to the above graphic appears:

    This is the sequence I am following as I attempt to download this file:

    I download the "Dak's Audio Workshop for Windows" link from the email.

    Link confirmation. Continue.

    In This PC, in Documents, Audio-Workshop-PC appears in the File Name window. In the Save As Type window appears WinRAR ZIP archive.

    I click Save.

    It downloads.

    I click it open.

    In the This PC area, in the Documents section, appears Dak_AudioWorkshop_InstallFile.

    ( I right click here, but the General tab does not appear. I continue.)

    I Extract all.

    Window appears: Files will be extracted to this folder: C:\Users\Anthony\Dicuments\Audio-Workshop-PC. I check: Show extracted files when complete.
    I click Extract.

    A window appears of This Pc, Documents location, with Dak_AudioWorkshoo_InstallFile listed. I right click. Again, the General tab in Audio Workshop PC zip properties does not appear I click Run As Administrator.
    User Account Control appears: do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device? I click yes.

    A Setup DAC audio Workshop window opens up: Welcome to the Dak audio Workshop setup wizard. I click next.

    I clicked the I accept the agreement. I click on next.

    A window with setup DAK audio Workshop appears. Select destination location, where should DAK audio Workshop be installed. Setup will install DAK audio Workshop into the following folder: C:\Program Files (x86)DAK Audio Workshop. I click Next.

    Setup DAK audio Workshop window appears. Select start menu folder: where should set up place the programs shortcut. Set up will create the program shortcut in The following start menu folder: DAK audio Workshop. I click next.

    I click create a desktop icon.

    Next.

    Ready to Install...etc.

    I click Install.

    Installing.

    Completing the DAK audio Workshop setup wizard. Launch deck audio Workshop. I click finish.

    The wheel spins on the pointer arrow.

    Nothing happens. It doesn't launch.

    There is a DAK Icon on Home Page. I right click on that. The General tab does not appear.

    I am sorry if I appear dense. I really am not. I am extremely frustrated, mostly with DAK themselves. They have been useless throughout this ordeal. I know it is something simple I am missing. I am not a computer expert and I bow to everyone in this forum who has superior knowledge. Please be patient. If you can help, I will be extremely grateful. Otherwise, I will be without an application that has been a part of my life for a long time, and I would hate to be without it, though I may have to resign myself to the fact that this may be more difficult for me to comprehend and fix.

    Just a closing note: I have finally resolved my computer issue, no thanks to any of the help I have received. There was basic information that was never asked for nor needed. Try as I might, I feel inadequate posting any questions. Therefore, I often am reluctant posting anything. I will not divulge how I finally resolved my computer issue. I am just thrilled my problem is solved. Just a suggestion: please do not assume people are as high of a level of computer knowledge as you. Often we are desperate for help. Please be a little humble in assuming we know what we are doing. We often do not. Anyway enough from me. I pray I do not need any more Windows help, although I am glad to know something like this exists, and will only use it as a very last resort.

    I am having the exact same problem installing DAK audio Workshop on a Windows 10 machine, in my case, Windows 10 Home 64-bit version. I would appreciate knowing how you solved the problem. I have no part in your argument, and I'm a Music Guy myself, as well as a Windows expert.

    Thanks, Richard

    Sorry I can't help. I have it installed and it will not run. I tried going into my DAK account to see if they had a update. It keeps telling me the email address is not recognized. It works when they want to send me ads to buy their earphones.
