I'm not sure how you are trying to open the program remotely - I assume it's in a shared folder. If so, then the security for the file has to be set appropriately. That's done in Windows Explorer - right click on the file in question and click on Security, then adjust the permissions as necessary.

Windows cannot access specified device path or file

Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have appropriate permissions.What's annoying about this message is that sometimes it has nothing to do with permissions at all! Here's a couple of possible ways to fix it, depending on your system.
Note: First, restart your computer in Safe Mode (only XP and Vista) and see if you can open the file or programs in question. If so, it's not a "real" permission issue, it's a program or process on your computer that is giving the error.

The best solution that has worked for most people is to simply uninstall Internet Explorer enhanced security configuration.
Method 2 - Turn off anti-virus or firewall If you are having this issue in Windows XP or Windows Vista, then your problem is probably related to an actual permission issue.
Norton Internet 200X, Bitdefender, AVG anti-virus, Trend Micro 200X can all cause this problem. If you have any of these programs installed, make sure to disable them and test it you can run programs, open files, etc.
If so, then you'll have to either use a different program or find something on the Internet about to how to configure your software to not interact badly with Windows.
The same thing can also happen with an overly aggressive firewall. If you are running Comodo firewall or something similar (other than the basic Windows Firewall), then disable that also.
Method 3 - Unblock the file If neither of those two methods worked, the file may be blocked by Windows. Note that this is only for Windows Server 2003 and higher.
When you copy an EXE file from another computer to a Windows Server 2003 box, there is what is called a blocked property set on the file. This is due to the increased security on servers.
Right-click on the file and choose Properties. You'll see a button called Unblock at the bottom.

Method 4 - Real permissions issue Finally, you may actually have a permissions issue. In this case, make sure you are an Administrator or you are part of the Domain Admins group if you are in a domain.
Also, you can try right-clicking on the file and choose Run As. Then type in the Administrator credentials and try to run the file. If you are able to run it, that means you account is not setup properly or is not in the rightuser group.

Error 1402.Setup cannot open the registry kaey. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{7EA9A8FA-F5D2-49E1-99E8-C26EE07FCEEB}\LocalServer32.

The first thing you should do to fix this error is - if you're using Windows 98 or 2000 - to use the 'registry checker' facility. This is done by loading up the "Run Console" with CTRL + R and then typing "registry checker". If the registry is intact then this will not be a problem. On later versions of Windows, you should use a 'registry cleaner' program to perform this task.

If you have XP, Vista or Windows 7, you should first download a registry cleaner from the Internet and let that scan your system. It will look for any registry errors on your PC and then fix them, which should fix the 1402 error in the process. To use one of these, you need to download a registry scanner program and then let it scan your PC. It will identify all the damaged parts of Windows and should fix them. And if one of these registry errors is causing the 1402 error then a quick restart after the registry scan should enable you to install Office or the program you wanted.

If that method did not work, you should try using a different user account, or creating a new user account, to install the program onto. It's often the case that user accounts will become corrupted for whatever reason, blocking access to the registry. This causes the 1402 error because it means that the program cannot access the files and settings it needs to create when it's being installed. You should try creating a new administrator account and then installing the program on that.

Sounds like a virus/malware.
Scan with Malwarebytes in safe mode (F8 on boot up)
I would also switch your system restore off while you virus scan, lots of nasties can hide there.
Its up to you if you turn it back on later.
If you dont have any Antivirus ( but i think you probably will have :) )
Try AVG9 FREE or Microsoft Security Essentials

What is run time error '-2147467259(80004005)' how i solved it rewati nadan

"The Microsoft Jet Database Engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'"There are several causes for this error message:
  • The account that Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) is using (which is usually IUSR) does not have the correct Windows NT permissions for a file-based database or for the folder that contains the file.
  • The file and the data source name are marked as Exclusive.
  • Another process or user has the Access database open.
  • The error may be caused by a delegation issue. Check the authentication method (Basic versus NTLM), if any. If the connection string uses the Universal Naming Convention (UNC), try to use Basic authentication or an absolute path such as C:\Mydata\Data.mdb. This problem can occur even if the UNC points to a resource that is local to the IIS computer.
  • This error may also occur when you access a local Microsoft Access database that is linked to a table where the table is in an Access database on a network server.
  • Check the permissions on the file and the folder. Make sure that you have the ability to create and/or destroy any temporary files. Temporary files are usually created in the same folder as the database, but the file may also be created in other folders such as the WINNT folder. For additional information about how to identify which folder does not have the correct permissions and how to configure temporary files, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 253604 ( ) Microsoft Access 97 database connectivity fails in Active Server Pages If you use a network path to the database (UNC or mapped drive), check the permissions on the share, the file, and the folder.
  • Verify that the file and the data source name (DSN) are not marked as Exclusive.
  • The "other user" may be Microsoft Visual InterDev. Close any Visual InterDev projects that contain a data connection to the database.
  • Simplify. Use a System DSN that uses a local drive letter. If necessary, move the database to the local drive to test.
  • Follow the instructions in the following article to work around this problem: 189408 ( ) FIX: ASP fails to access network files under IIS 4.0 and IIS 5.0

I need help with microsoft office 2007

The resolution appears to be two fold,

First of all you might want to add the following registry key depending on the application for which the user gets a prompt:
Click on Start Run then type in the following command for respective applications.
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\<application>\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1 For Ex:
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Excel\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\PowerPoint\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1.
This should normally take care of the issue in applications like Outlook ,Word and Power point .

The user might also get a secondary error message when opening Excel application that states the following. stdole32.bmp

Note: Opening excel in the application safe mode would bypass the error. But this could be misleading coz the issue has more to do with permission than add-in within the application.

To resolve this problem you would need to perform the following steps:

1) Go to start > run > regedit

2) Navigate to the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > Excel.Chart.8

3) Right Click on key and select Permissions

4) In the Permission windows > Click on Add Tab and add everyone

5) Once this is done Click on the Advanced Tab > Owner > Highlight Everyone > Click on Apply and Ok

6) In the Permission > Select Everyone > enable the check box for Full Control and Read, then Click on Apply and Ok.

7) Click on F5 to refresh, this should create a new Sub key below Excel.Chart.8 called Protocol > Right Click on the key and repeat step 3 – 5.

8) Refresh again and follow the same sequence of steps to add permission to the following Sub keys StdFileEditing >Server.

9) Close the registry editor.

This should resolve the issue for good.
