This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Try to run it using ./executablefilename instead of using sh executablefilename. It's not a shell script after all.

Also make sure the executable's architecture (in this case x86_64) is compatible with your OS's architecture in case you didn't get it to run with Mario's advice. – rfc1918 Sep 28 '15 at 9:14
