How to fix the ”This app can’t run on your PC” error in Windows 10

If Windows 10 is showing you a "This app can’t run on your PC" error when trying to execute the GI.bench installation file, there could be a few reasons behind this issue

  1. Run a copy of the executable
    This is an unusual trick but it might get the job done. Copy the executable file and paste it into a new location. Then, run the copied file as you would normally do.
  2. Run the executable as an admin
    Permission issues are common reasons the installation file won’t open or function the way it should. Fixing this is easy as all you need to do is run the executable with admin privileges. To do that, you must log in as an admin, right-click the GI.bench installation file, and select Run as administrator.
  3. Redownload the executable
    Sometimes the file gets corrupted during the download. Switching to a different browser and redownloading the same file again may solve the issue. If this does not solve it try to download the file from a different PC. If both attempts are unsuccessful contact your local support representative for an alternative download location.
