I own a Dell Optiplex 745
discovered error message "run-time error '5' invalid procedure call or argument" when trying t run an important software item. After much fiddling about including placing and extracting it at source dir. it was advised that I should format the hard drive.
Whist trying to format the drive it would not allow me to do it in Windows so I tried in Dos and received following error meassage "Cannot lock the drive. The volume is still in use"
My questions are
1 Are there any other solutions to rectify the software conflict issue apart from contacting the software developer (The program is a Japanese one and have set language setting correctly)
It did work on my other computer on a Windows XP Pro 32 bit platform. I cannot determine what this Windows version is other than it reads Windows version 5.1 (build 2600.xpsp (service pack)?
2 If solution to software conflict cannot be found how can I solve the format problem as mentioned in the above introduction.?
trying to complete an urgent project and most frustrated
Look forward to your kind help
