Gord Allott (gordallott) said :

you need to right click on the files and goto properties. on the new window that opens you need to goto the permissions tab and make sure that "Allow executing file as program" is checked. now when you double click them you will be asked to open the file or run the file, you need to choose run.

Can you help with this problem?
