Hello Keith,

Thank you for your message.

The Exec format error usually means that Ubuntu wasn’t able to interface correctly with the binary, i.e. that it’s designed for a different chipset than your kernel currently supports. Could you please clarify which CPU arch your Ubuntu have - is it 32-bit or 64-bit?
Please type arch in a terminal window to find out whether your system is 32-bit (result is i686) or 64-bit (result is x86_64).

Looking forward to your reply.

Hello Keith,

Thank you for the clarification.

The Viewer is built for the 64-bit systems since it's also possible for the 64-bit systems to run applications built for the 32-bit systems. Unfortunately, it's not possible to run the 64-bit applications on the 32-bit systems. Sorry for the inconvenience.
However, we might release a separate Viewer built for 32-bit based systems in the future.

Please let us know if you have more questions.
