An alias is simply a file that points to another file. It is not the actual file. I suspect that if you are connected to the internet, they might work.

Or download them again and this time choose to open the file and then save them from with in illustrator to your desk top

On Mac book pro, I have installed Axure software, Not able to open it.


Hi Satish
Did you download the Mac Version? .EXE files are for Win PC and won't run on a Mac (Unless you have used BootCamp to install Windows)
The Mac version downloads as a .DMG file (AxureRP-Pro-Setup.dmg) which is a Disk Image and should mount on the Desktop like a Hard Drive.
Apple now turn this off by default so goto Finder Preferences and turn on "Hard Disks" then "Advanced" / Tick "Show all filename extensions"
When the Disk Image shows on the desktop just open it and drag the actual App to the Applications folder (or Desktop). You could then drag it to the Dock at the bottom of the screen to make a quick shortcut (alias)
Also be aware that Apple try to protect your Privacy etc from unauthorised Apps. So if it opens with a warning, you can fix this by going to your System Preferences / Security & Privacy / General and click "Allow Apps downloaded from" click Anywhere.

Hope this takes care of your problem?
If So...Click HELPFUL
