Cannot run program "..../abc.exe": error=13, Permission denied

I am trying to execute the following code:

try
{
Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime() ;
Process p = rt.exec("/Users/abc/xyz.exe") ;
InputStream in = (InputStream) p.getInputStream() ;
OutputStream out = (OutputStream) p.getOutputStream();
InputStream err = (InputStream) p.getErrorStream() ;
System.out.println("in "+ in);
System.out.println("out" + out);
System.out.println("err" + err);
//do whatever you want

p.destroy() ;
}
catch(Exception e)
{
/*handle exception*/
e.printStackTrace();
throw new Exception("Error " + e.getMessage(), e.getCause());
}


and I am getting the following error :

Cannot run program "/Users/abc/xyz.exe": error=13, Permission denied


I checked if I have the necessary permissions and found this via terminal:

-rw-r--r--@ 1 username staff 4016 Nov 22 23:12 /Users/abc/xyz.exe


Any suggestions on how to get this working?

You need to change permission of xyz.exe

chmod u+x /Users/abc/xyz.exe
