Getting application cannot run in win32 mode when I try to access a network drive

I can disconnect the drive and re map it fine but when I double click on it it gives me the error: x: application cannot run in win32 mode. I can get to all my other network drives or I can type X in explorer ( X being the drive letter) and it will pull it up fine. Any suggestions?

Found this on the net:

1. open your notepad and do not write anything in that, just save that as "autorun.inf" (without quotes)
2. Then copy that file to all of your drives for e.g:- c:/, d:/ e.t.c
3. Restart your pc
4. Go to your first drive for example c:/ and delete the file autorun.inf
5. do the same thing with all of your drives
6. then restart your pc
bingo ! you have your pc recovered back

Cannot run in win32 mode

possibility is that the registry is corrupt and no longer capable of accessing the DLL to help it in installing programs in the win32 directory, so do a registry fix with program like c-cleaner.

let me know if this helps

Drive access

there is a corrupted part of your operating system, you need to install the installer of your operating sytem. if you are running in winxp, repair your drive c by typing CHKDSK while on cd rom boot. you can also click repair instead of format to secure your saved documents.
