Problem with Running a Program

I have an executable program (myprog) which works well on 2 Linux machines of my friend. The program is a general code and there is no license for it. However, it does not work on my computer (Linux SuSE). When I run it (myprog), the message is:

bash: ./myprog: Permission denied

I tried to run it as:

~> myprog
~> ./myprog

Neither of them worked.

Any idea what might be wrong here?

Have you looked at the permissions of the file by running ls -l ~/myprog Are the executable bits set?

Also, is your home directory on a partition that is mounted with the noexec option?
