I received an .exe from someone and it won't install on my desktop (Error = Fatal Error Detected, Failed to execute script main) but it installs on other PCs. However, when I build it a new .exe on my desktop, it works on my desktop and other PCs. Any ideas why this would be the case?

Can you share any information about anything that's different about these machines?

If nobody can re-create the issue or have anything to go off of to help figure out why it might be happening then it's going to keep happening :P

Antivirus software? Windows versions? etc... The only thing that can be done is some investigative work on your part to figure out what it is that's different about the machines you've encountered.
