    The “One M8.exe” that I extracted from the downloaded archive is there for a second when I open the file but then it just disappears. When I try to open it before it disappears, something pops up which says “Windows cannot find “…” make sure you have typed the name correctly, and then try again.” When I try to open it directly from the archive (without extracting it first), it says “This app can’t run on your PC. To find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher.” I’m currently using Windows 8.1. I have tried opening it as administrator but it didn’t make a difference. Is this file broken or is it just incompatible with my PC? If it is could you possibly give me a link to something with might work? Thanks for reading, pls reply asap
