Error loading application in Windows 7

  gwladok5 10:47 AM 25 Apr 13


I'm trying to install an application downloaded from the Internet & saved to a memory stick.

Running setup exe from the downloaded folder, the install commences but then errors: "Windows cannot find C:\Users\ALUNS-1\Appdata\Local\Temp\file.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again"

Applications directly downloaded ie. CCleaner, and applications on disc with autoplay ie. Office, will all install ok

Any clues?

Copy the file to your hard drive and try again.
