This won't fix it but it might give us some clues:

Open a terminal window.
Type: cd 'Quick and Easy Web Builder' (or wherever you have stored it)
Type: ls -al Q*

Then tell us what is displayed. My system is using Kubuntu 18.10 and it works fine for me, my screen shows this:
-rwxrwxr-x 1 brian brian 36993176 Feb 5 09:04 qnewb
-rw-r--r-- 1 brian brian 158 Jul 28 2016 qnewb.desktop
-rw-r--r-- 1 brian brian 3990774 Jul 9 2018 qnewb.pdf
-rw-rw-r-- 1 brian brian 55770 May 8 2018 qnewb.png
the dates may be different on yours but the execution bits and sizes should be the same.

Hi Brian!
Version 6
yngve @ abras06 / opt / quick-n-easy-web-builder-6 $ ls -all q *
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 36993040 Feb 5 11:12 qnewb
-rw-r - r-- 1 root root 158 Jul 28 2016 qnewb.desktop
-rw-r - r-- 1 root root 3990774 jul 9 2018 qnewb.pdf
Version 5
yngve @ abras06 / opt / quick-n-easy-web-builder-5 $ ls -all q *
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 23524264 mar 5 2018 qnewb
-rw-r - r-- 1 root root 158 Jul 28 2016 qnewb.desktop
-rw-r - r-- 1 root root 4492205 Sep 27 2017 qnewb.pdf

Both versions are the same but for your example for the file "qnewb" there is no "w"

Did you right click the application and make sure it can be executed?

When I click on the file "qnewb" I get the choice to "make executable and run" and click on it.
I have repeatedly done this without effect! The same box gives the choice "Unknown file type"

I'm sorry, I cannot think of anything else.

Ok I understand Pablo!
A big thank you to everyone who has made suggestions and commitment to my problem.
If I find out later what the problem is, I will write about this.
And now I have to continue working on version 5!

Question for Pablo:
on my version the application 'qnewb' is 36993176 byte long but in Yngand's version it is 36993040 bytes.

So my working copy is 136 bytes bigger. Is this indicating a problem or does the file size depend on registration information being added to it?

No, it's not related to the registered version.
But, maybe the difference is 64bit vs 32bit.
