Windows cannot access file error message when trying to launch executable file
Posted on 2011-10-22
I am needing help resolving an issue which is believed to be associated with Windows 7 Ultimate Editiion. Basically, I have an excutable file which I want to launch, but, unable to do so because of the following error message: Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. Also, if I send this excutable file from the CD to the Windows 7 desktop and try to lauch it from there, I still get the same error message.
In closing, if more information is needed in helping to resolve this concern, please feel free to let me know. In the meantime, I hope to hear back from someone regarding this question. The laptop is running McAfee Total Protection. I am wondering if this program might possibly be blocking the file from being lauched with its built in firewall protection. Of course, this is speculation on my part because I really do not know.
At any rate, I look forward to trying out any suggestions given to this question. Thanks in advance for any help given.
