.RUN File Extension
File Type 1Linux Executable File
This file is saved in a binary format, which requires a specific program to read its contents.
Executable file typically used for Linux program installers; contains program data and instructions for making the installation; often used for distributing device drivers and software applications.
If you are having trouble executing a RUN file, the file likely does not have executable permissions. You can use the chmod command to add executable permissions (chmod +x myfile.run) and then run the file in a shell using the command ./myfile.run.
NOTE: Be careful when executing RUN files since they contain executable code.
