Default program won't execute

I downloaded PuTTY onto a XP pro machine. The program comes as a ready to execute binary. When I clicked on it I got a dialog box telling me that the application failed because the application configuration is incorrect. A quick search in the registry revealed that, as far as Windows is concerned, the program just doesn't exist. What to do?

Never heard of that one. I just have the EXE only on machine, and thus have no configuration files to go with it. Try it on another machine?

Well, it works on the many thousands of other machines. I downloaded it from the PuTTY homepage. But if that isn't the problem, what is?

It's not just PuTTY.exe. I'm having the same problem with the entire PuTTY suite.
