Did you make the file executable?
Code:
chmod +x CmapTools64.bin
Kind regards

if that does help try doing it using "sudo" i.e.

sudo ./CmapTools64.bin

please provide more information about what Linux distro you are using, what you are doing what the installation says, how you are installing, and with more information we will be able to help you, but as you figure out about the above, am assuming that the information below will assist you to some point:

You need admin privileges to chmod. Run:

Quote:
$ sudo chmod a+x CmapTools64.bin
Then:

Quote:
$ ./CmapTools64.bin
If the installation routine complains that you don't have sufficient permissions then do:

Quote:
$ sudo ./CmapTools64.bin

Depends totally on the owner of that file. If the OP owns the file he don't need root-privileges to chmod that file.
