I very often upload Windows programs with Transmit, but normally compressed as a Zip files. In very rare cases i upload them also as .exe. 
I´ve never run into such problem. Okay, that does not really help.

Are you sure the file was completely downloaded when you tried to open it? I remember that i got a similar error message when i tried to open an .exe file which was still downloaded/transferred.

Regarding your question about 32 and 64 bit. LC currently creates only 32 bit standalones for Windows.

And about  the differences between the “Program Files” and “Program Files (x86)” folders you´ll find some information here

From time to time I put Windows executables on a server using these clients for future download and execution on Windows 10. Something strange is happening: with ‘FileZilla’ there seems to be no problem, but with ‘Transmit’, sometimes W10 reports:
