What about running
$ mkpasswd -l -d > /etc/passwd
$ mkgroup -l -d > /etc/group
so you don't get this message?

No. What the strace shows is that bash does not even try to fork
and then exec FLEXPART_GFORTRAN. Rather, it just opens the file,
reads the first few bytes and then prints the error message:

For some reason which isn't visible in the strace, bash doesn't even
close the file anymore.
What does `file FLEXPART_GFORTRAN.exe' print?
