not marked as executable sounds like you may need to change the permissions to allow it to be executable.. if you open a terminal and type
Code:
cd ~/Desktop/
then type
Code:
ls -l Setup_MagicISO.exe
it should show you the file permissions, it should look something like this:

Code:
-rw-r--r-- 1 jenni users ...
the first 4 characters are what are important for now, in the above example "-rw-" you want that to be
"-rwx" for this file I think, if that's not what it says, then do the following:
Code:
chmod 744 Setup_MagicISO.exe
and see if that fixes the problem.

Linux command line is case sensitive - desktop and Desktop are not the same thing

You should not be root when you do that, cd ~/ brings you to the current user's home directory, so for that to work as I said you need to be logged in as the user who has the file in their /home/Desktop directory.

If that didn't work try
Code:
cd /home/dylan/Desktop/
your original post gives that as the path to this file, unless you moved it it should work.

In ubuntu normally by default you're locked out of root, if you did get in to root typing
Code:
exit
should get you out though
