Default Program too big for memory.

OK I downloaded a pretty large exe (800 MB) and am getting the message: Program Too big for memory or something close to that in a command prompt after attempting to open it. Obviously My objective isn't to open this exe into my memory. It may be a corrupt file but if anyone has figured out a solution to this I would be glad to hear it.

This issue can be caused by any of the following possibilities:

Partition incompatibility
BIOS update issue
Autoexec.bat / config.sys error
Computer Virus
Software issue

Sounds like the file is corrupt. Most times when files are that large they are ISO or ZIP not just EXE. If you are getting that error message then i would have to say that it is a corrupt file.
