Unable to install CmapTools

I have downloaded the v5.05 version for Linux from the CmapTools website but when I try to open the saved file in my "downloads" folder I get this message:

Could not display "/home/mikemiranda/Downloads/...xCmapTools_v5.05_08-07-12.bin" The File is of an unknown type.

I read in another thread to make sure the file is executable, but I don't know what that means.
