I have a Western Digital "Mybook Live" NAS and I store update files and installation programs in a shared folder. Recently, when I have tried to run these programs on Windows 8.1, I get an error message:
The parameter is incorrect.
\\seltzerserver is the name of my server
\updates is the shared folder
...(installation.exe) is the place holder where the sub-folder and installation program name would go
I am able to copy the entire folder to the desktop and run it from there, but I really do not want to do this. I was able to run these programs from the NAS in the past. I just reinstalled Windows 8.1 on my computer, and have to reinstall all the programs, so I would prefer to do this without copying them all to the desktop first.
Any ideas what could be wrong?
