Error - Failed To Find Driver File Path


I receive the error "failed to find driver file path. Error=ffffffffx[gle=0x00000003]" when trying to update from vista to windows 7. The upgrade gets to the 'updating files and settings' phase, then ends up rolling back to vista. Before this last install that failed i've updated all of my drivers, removed my antivirus software, used the mouse that came with my system rather than my wireless mouse, and unplugged all usb devices-basically everything i've been told to try.

The last thing i was told was that i'll have to just do a clean install. I'm very disappointed since one of the reasons i decided to buy windows 7 was that i would be able to upgrade and keep all of my settings.

Error Code - 2 - System Cannot Find The File Specified

Error copying to external drive: error code 2 "system cannot find the file specified" i've been trying to perform a mirror style backup to my external drive of everything in c:users. First of all i tried using robocopy (my preferred tool) with the command line running as administrator and that failed after copying a few hundred files. It came up with error code 2, system cannot find the file specified. I used robocopy c:users h:ackup_win7 /b /m /e /dcopy:t /r:0 /xj

I then tried using the freeware tool fbackup, this also managed to copy a few hundred files before getting stuck in the same way (at a different point).

Finally, i tried picking one set of folders (pictures) and doing a manual copy/paste into the destination directory, this also failed after copying a few hundred files with an error about not finding the file.

The actual files it fails on are nothing special, just regular jpg. If i create a simple test.txt on the drive it works fine. The problem only seems to occur with large numbers of files being copied and where it actually fails seems to depend on which tool i use to copy the files.

Each time this problem occurs my system goes into meltdown with massive cpu usage and then windows won't let me dismount the drive as it insists something is still trying to do something with it.

The only way out is to restart the computer. I've tried running chkdsk /r on the external drive (a seagate freeagent 1tb drive via usb 2) and no errors were found. The drive in question worked perfectly with xp sp3 for several months and has no problems reading from files in windows 7, just this writing issue. I've also tried turning off all services with msconfig, but that just meant that the external drive wouldn't mount at all.

My system is an athlon 64 x2 5600+ running at 2. 9ghz, with 4gb of ddr2 800 on a msi k9n v3 motherboard and an nvidia 8500 gt graphics card. The source disk is a 300gb hitachi sata drive. Overall system performance (aside from this issue) seems very good. I'm using windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, installed from a clean install after xp was previously on the disk.

Desktop Or Taskbar Shortcut To File Path

In windows xp, i used to be able to create a shortcut to a specific file path on my company's shared document drive (the h: drive), like so:

H:projects2009proj999-99999 project namesubfolder title xsubfolder title ysubfolder title z

Once i'd done that, i'd drag the shortcut to the bottom of my screen, and thereafter i'd have one-click access to that file path. Now that we've upgraded to windows 7, i can't figure out how to accomplish this. I don't want to create a shortcut to one specific file but rather to the entire file path, so i'll be able to see all the documents and sub-folders within that file folder. Can anyone help me?

Printer Path Error

I was working on my program family tree maker when the following error occurred and i could not use my printer. I had to close family tree maker, close internet hookup with ancestry.com restart my computer. Then go to uniblue registry booster program to see if there are errors.

Error from microsoft 7

Runshell("regsvr32.exe", '/s "c:usersbetty'sappdatalocaltemppft8ac7. Tmpcpc_dmird.dll"', "", @normal, @wait)

Third time same date

Runshell("regsvr32.exe", '/s "c:usersbetty'sappdatalocaltemppft14fa. Tmpcpc_dmird.dll"', "", @normal, @wait)

This same problem happened 5 times more. Each time i had to go out of what i was doing on family tree maker close the file. Close my internet hook with ancestry.com and restart my computer. Here is the repair log from uniblue registry booster when i used it:

20:34:24 fri, 07 may 10
19:24: 59 fri, 07 may 10
18:04:52 sat 24 apr 10

I have done what ancestry has advised, and what microsoft has advised but this same problem keeps happening. This is a problem between your two programs and i am tired of it and someone has to repair this.

Can't Find Win 7 Backup File

Can't find windows 7 backup file, and back and restore utility claims that backup hasn't been run, but drive has been filled. After installing windows 7, i was asked to backup the system. I was in the middle of something, so i clicked yes, assuming i could change the settings later. Now i notice that twice as much space is used on my hard drive (presumably because of the backup), but i can't find any evidence of the backup file using windows explorer, even when i view hidden files. In addition, the windows backup and restore utility claims that i haven't set up windows backup.

I'd like to remove this backup to free-up space, and then set the system to backup to my external hard drive instead. Any idea how to go about this?

(Sidenote: i have blackarmor backup installed, and it ran a backup onto my external hard drive fairly recently, but it doesn't appear to have anything to do with the problem i'm talking about. )

Cannot Find 3rd File To Install Xp Compatibility Mode

With windows 7 in a brand-new pc, i went to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx after confirming that my pc will handle the software. One must enter their os (windows 7 64-bit ultimate) and language (english), after which 3 blue boxes appear. The user is told to download file#1, install it, then file#2 and then file#3. Everything works fine with #1 and #2, but the blue box for #3 on that page is not a hyperlink (as are #1 and #2). It says, "**enables windows xp mode for pcs" - and i suppose that it would, if it was a live url. It appears that someone has updated the webpage and inadvertently messed up the hyperlink. Either that, or i'm a dummy. Maybe both.
Any help appreciated.

Aiptek Dv4500 Cannot Find Driver

My aiptek dv4500 cannot be used in "live mode" with windows 7. I used it last night with a computer running windows xp, so it is not a fault with the camera. I can transfer files from the camera to the computer (video, pictures) but i cannot use the built in webcam with windows 7, it will not detect the driver. I downloaded the driver from the manufacturer's website, and also from the cd that came with the camera, and still, i cannot use it. The windows 7 compatibility website says that the dv4500 isfully compatible with windows 7. How can i get my webcam working?

Cannot Find Driver For Playstation 2 Eyetoy Namtai

Windows 7 cannot find the driver files for the playstation 2 eyetoy namtai, even though i'm using the same files. I'm thinking that i'll need to find a way to install these items manually without the help of windows 7's installation wizard. Does anyone know how to do this or if anyone has any better ideas i'm open to them! I'm running at 64-bit, this is probably going to make a big difference.

Brother Hl-2140 - Windows Can't Find A Suitable Driver

I have a brother hl-2140 connected to my windows vista-32 business pc via usb. Prints great. It is shared. I have a second windows vista-32 business pc and installed the shared printer and it prints fine. I have a laptop with windows 7-64 home premium and i'm trying to install the shared printer. I have downloaded all current drivers via brother's website and used both disks that came with the printer (all os's on one disk and windows 7 as a separate disk). I've tried installing all versions of drivers to be sure. I've plugged the printer directly into the laptop and the printer prints fine.

When trying to install the shared printer, i physically point the laptop to the correct *. Inf file, but it always says that "windows could not find a suitable driver. " Just as a side note, brother states on their site that the hl-2140 is windows 7 compatible. I have seen many posts that contains 7 and xp issues. But i have not found any post for 7-64 to vista-32 sharing.

Cannot Find .inf Printer Driver For Canon Pixma Ip4000

I have a laptop running windows 7 (64-bit machine) that i want to print from. The laptop is wireless on a home network. The desktop is wireless as well and is running windows xp. The desktop has a canon pixma ip4000 printer hooked up with a parallel cable. I have installed the latest xp drivers for the printer on the desktop. The laptop can connect directly to the printer with a usb cable and the drivers will download automatically and it will print fine. However, i cannot connect this printer using the wireless system.

I can go on the laptop to the home network and navigate to the printer and try to install. It does an automatic search and says it cannot find the proper drivers. I can browse to the install file on my desktop, but it is an .exe file and not . Inf. I have run the .exe file and it installs too, but the printer installer on the laptop will not let me by the add . Inf screen to finish installing a wireless printer. Any suggestions?

Canon Imagepass D660 Laser Printer - Cannot Find Driver

I'm looking for creative ideas on my friend's current conundrum. He got a new $400 compaq pc from best buy loaded w/ windows 7 64-bit. All went swimmingly well until we got to his canon imagepass d660 laser printer. No 64-bit driver. Canon will never create a 64-bit driver for it. He loves this printer and does not want to abandon it. We can print to the printer from a laptop we converted from 32-bit vista to 32-bit 7. I'd share the printer from the laptop to the desktop but i believe that would still require a 64-bit driver.

I see only two options, unless someone can suggest another:

1. Repurchase win 7 at retail; wipe & reload the pc with 32-bit. Not sure if 32-bit drivers are available for the internal hardware. No cd came with the pc, either.

2. Return the pc and locate another pc with 32-bit loaded - probably via dell or hp online.
If there is any way to circumvent a problem where there is no 64-bit support for a printer but another networked pc can print via 32-bit, i'd love to know about it.

Novatel Driver Installation Failed:1603

Unable to install or uninstall novatel driver - get this message: "driver installation failed:1603" i have had no prior trouble installing and uninstalling programs. I have a new 64 bit viao running win7 that has been a joy for about a month until i tried to use my verizon usb720 wireless modem. I updated the vzaccess software and drivers from verizon's web site. Problem, the driver will not install, getting the above error message - and i cannot uninstall it, either.

I spent 2 hours with verizon tech support and they were unable to resolve the problem, finally claiming it's a windows problem. I found a similar problem posted (also involving the same modem) but the moderator's suggested solution (see below) did not work and was inapplicable to win 7. I did steps 1-4 with no problem, but did not download the 4. 5 installer b/c it is not for win7.

To assist you better, please provide us more information. A) are you able to install other programs without any error message? I would suggest you to unregister and re-register windows installer and check whether it helps. To do so, please follow the steps below: unregister windows installer, and then reregister windows installer. To do this, follow these steps:
 
1. On the "start" menu, click "run:.
 
2. In the "open" box, type "msiexec /unreg", and then press enter.
 
3. On the "start" menu, click "run".
 
4. In the "open" box, type "msiexec /regserver", and then press enter.
For more information, please refer the link mentioned below:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555175

Also you can download and install latest version on windows installer from the link mentioned below:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?
Familyid=5a58b56f-60b6-4412-95b9-54d056d6f9f4&displaylang=en

After you finish all these steps then you can try installing vzaccess manager software and check this might fix your issue.

Win7 Doesn't Find Digitally Signed Driver From Windows Update

Windows 7 tries to find a driver from windows update in default. If i connect my printer, citizen ct-s310 by usb cable with a fresh window 7 (either x64 or x86), windows 7 can't find the driver from windows update. I know the following two workarounds.

Before connecting the printer, downloading the latest driver from the manufacturer, installing it and setting "device installation settings" to "never install driver software from windows update". In "devices and printers", "add a printer" and using "windows update", selecting "citizen ct-s310". Installing this driver.

My point is there is a digitally signed driver in windows update. Windows 7 should find the driver and install it even if we don't install the driver before connecting the printer. Any ideas?

Usb Flash Drive Driver Install Failed / Not Recognized

I plugged in a flash drive to my laptop the other day and i got the plug and play message, it downloaded the driver but the installation failed. Now windows 7 will not even recognize that the flash drive is plugged in or try to install the driver again. The flash drive still works on my main computer just fine and other usb devices including other flash drivers work just fine on this laptop. Device manager and computer management under administrative tools do not register it as being plugged in either.

I could not find a way to check if maybe the driver did install and was corrupted. Is there anything i can do?
