Missing shortcut?

I just downloaded Windows Scrivener, but I clicked on it and it didn’t open and said “Missing Shortcut: Windows is searching for scrivener.exe” I came here and downloaded the file you need to run scrivener (Microsoft Visual C++) then rebooted my computer. When I tried again, the same thing happened, so I redownloaded scrivener, but this didn’t fix it either. I don’t know what’s wrong…any suggestions? Thanks.

What antivirus are you running? Some users running norton have experienced problems downloading the installation file.

I’d like clarification, did you already INSTALL it or is this the installer that won’t open?

Yes, I have installed it, and now I am just trying to open it. I use AVG, does that effect it?
