Purchasing + Installing

I have installed Drake Tax from the support website, but the file will not run or open. How do I fix this and finish installing?


The download file is being blocked or prevented from opening by a program on your computer. To allow the file to open, and continue the download, follow these steps:

  1. On your computer, press Windows key + E to open the File Explorer.
  2. Select the folder Downloads in the left pane of the File Explorer window.
    • If using Chrome, press CTRL + J to show the recent downloads and then choose Show in Folder to access the save location directly.  
  3. Right click on the file named DrakeYY_Federal.exe and choose Properties
  4. On the Properties window, locate and check the box Unblock.


  1. Click Apply and OK.
  2. Then double-click to open and run the file. 
  3. Continue with the download as usual.
