I own a Dell Optiplex 745 OS Windows XP Pro 5.1 (build 2600.xpsp.050329-1536 : Service Pack 2)
I discovered an error message "run-time error '5' invalid procedure call or argument" when trying to 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 and reinstall Windows
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 message "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
