Hi!! I have a Compaq Presario that a friend gave me a while back that used to work and start up..but it doesn't now and I haven't been on it in months. It keeps saying that: Windows could not


The "Win32 config" system folder and the files within it are crucial to the Windows Operating System's stability. If any of these files become damaged or corrupted, you likely receive error messages. Fortunately, Microsoft puts the files to repair these problems on the installation CD that comes with your operating system. The original install disk offers a quick way to repair the system. Damaged files are replaced in only a few minutes.

Insert your Windows CD into the computer drive. Restart your computer. On startup, look for the message, "Press any key to boot from CD" and press "Enter" on your keyboard. You should see the blue "Welcome to Setup" screen. Click "Enter" on the "Welcome to Setup" screen. Read the "Microsoft Software License Terms," then press "F8." Use your arrow keys, go down and select the Windows installation you want to repair. Press "R" for "Repair." Windows will now start to restore the Win32 System to your computer.

Whenever i download an executable file and try to run it i get the following message: "......" is not avalid win32 application. Going to the downloaded files folder the file is there but has a size of 0kb....


Does this happen with any file, or just the .exe files? Are you downloading from the same site, or different sites? My first thought is that you may be trying to download corrupted files, or that you have a virus. If you can, restore your computer, and see what happens. That's all I can think of, maybe someone else will have more info for you.

Win 32 application error


Hello bigk157,

This may be happening due to a virus infection. Do a search for win32 virus on Google and you'll see what I mean. Try downloading a program like Malware Byte's Anti-Malware or Super Anti-Spyware and running a FULL (not quick scan, have some patience as it may take a while) scan on your computer. Follow prompts and remove infected files. You may end up removing an important win32 file windows needs to run, but since its been compromised you'll have to delete it. You can restore it and other system files by doing a "Repair Install" from your Windows Installation disc. You can find instructions on how to perform a Repair Install by searching on Google.

Note: Not a "Recovery Console" repair by pressing "R" before continuing with windows installation. Sometime these two things get confused for one another.

Hope this helps, if so leave me some positive feedback. Thank you.

When I try and load programs like burning software or a new sound driver, I get the message "....exe is not a valid Win32 application." What can I do?


This error could be anything from cd/DVD needs clean, program corrupt, to viruses. If you can clean your player and re-install software and drivers your left with problems with the laser pick up in the cd/DVD, still program corrupt or viruses.

The likely problem is that the download did not complete properly. Please check the file size of the downloaded file against what is listed in the download. This often also results in a "Bad CRC" error. Both these errors can be fixed by making sure you have a complete download. Some users have found that being connected to their companies VPN can cause downloads to be slow and timeout, resulting in an incomplete download.

If you have received 0 kb files have found that disabling Norton Internet Security or other firewall on their computer has solved the problem.

MY COMPUTER SAYS THAT QUICKTIME INSTALLER.EXE IS NOT A VALID WIN32 APPLICATION HOW DO I FIX THAT MY SELF



I know of only one common reason for this error message.  That is, the installation file is corrupted and needs to be downloaded again.  QuickTime is packaged with iTunes and can be downloaded from Apple.com.

Unable to play video clips or avi file on media player 11


You need to play these files on VLC or in Media Player Classic. You can play almost any media file through them.
If you don't have any then you can download VLC media player from the following links:
for windows os zip file 16mb: http://videolan.cdn.cacheboy.net/vlc/0.9.9/win32/vlc-0.9.9-win32.exe
windows 26mb:http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/videolan/vlc/0.9.9/win32/vlc-0.9.9-win32.zip

& for mac 19mb: http://mirror.leaseweb.com/pub/software/videolan/vlc/0.9.9a/macosx/vlc-0.9.9a-intel.dmg

And if you want media player classic here is a link to download it: http://mirror01.x264.nl/x264/mpc2kxp6490.zip (212mb)

If these players cant play your files then might not have given enough time to download your torrent or must have downloaded corrupt file.

You downloaded from the correct site. It is compatible with Vista. Sounds like a download that got corrupt along the way while downloading.

Did you download the file:
cjrZ500-Z600EN.exe ?

Delete the file you downloaded and try again. Except this time, SAVE the file to your desktop perhaps.. (doesn't matter where.. just don't select RUN when you click to download the file)

If you cannot run any other programs.. and get Invalid Win32 application for other items.. then you may have a problem with file association. Can you run any other exe programs?

I try to run program i just down loaded and all i get is exe is not a valid win32 applicatoin


That normally occurs when the file you downloaded did not download completely (The download may not have indicated any errors during download, but pieces of the file sometimes get corrupted during transmission).

My usual resolve is to delete the file, then download it again. You may want to reboot your system before trying to run the download again.
