Error - Unsupported 16-bit Application


When ever i start up my computer and log into my, or any account there are no icons, background or start bar. I have to navigate to get to anything using using task manager. I believe it has something to do with windows explorers registery. This is what comes up when i first log in. Unsupported 16-bit application the program or feature "? C:windowsexplorer.exe" cannot start or run due to the incompatibility with 64-bit version of windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit windows compatible version is available.

The thing is that i have windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. This all happened when my graphics card died, and i had to stick a really old pci card in (fx 5200) until i got the replacement. A few days ago it stopped showing anything related to explorer. So when i got my new cards (gts 250, and 4890) they both did the same thing. I updated my graphics  drivers for both ati, and then nvidia but it did not fix anything. I have even tried system restore, and the program it runs to try and fix things before it loads windows. I have scanned for viruses and found nothing. Sorry if this seems long winded but a lot has happened please help!

Application Error 0xc000007b

Recently loaded windows 7. About half the time when i boot the computer up, at start up, i get an msn.exe application error - the application was unable to start correctly - 0xc000007b at start up.

I click ok, hit control/alt/delete keys to run the taskmrg.exe (to check what programs are running) and get the same message.

During this same window session, i attempt to launch programs and get the following error message "there is not enough memory to run this program. Exit one or more programs and try again. I've not loaded any other programs except for what is loaded at start up.

To resolve, i have to reboot the system. It usually clears up the program.

Sttray64.exe Application Error

Sttray64.exe application error, mmc.exe application error, and a zte usb modem that has started giving me access violation errors/msdart.dll and eolesys errors in module dll_netcard_r.dll

Windows 7 home with norton 360 2010

Part 1: the problem started with my zte usb modem giving me the different access violations, it says that msdart.dll was not designed to work with the operating system, along with the eolesys errors and access violations. It previously worked fine, and now i'm not sure why it won't work.

Part 2: i also after the previous errors started, that right after booting up that it gave me a sttray64.exe application error. I would close it, and eventually had norton not let it bootup with the system which solved that problem. Then i noticed that i also was denied access to the device manager through a mmc.exe application error. Also certain command prompts like event-viewer give me the application error etc.

What kind of problem could this be? It seems to be acting like a virus, but my system speed and functionality has remained great. It's not slow and doesn't reboot or give me problems outside when i look for the things mentioned above. Norton has always been up and running and its never given lets worms through before.

I've tried system restore back a few months and from the backup i had on an external but it doesn't change anything. Would a return to factory settings help?

Error - .exe Is Not A Valid Win32 Application

I am consistently having problems downloading programs from the internet. I am confident that it is not a corrupted file issue as i am downloading (or trying to!) From dependable sources - hp, autodesk, etc. These error messages occur both when i try to just run the .exe or save it and then run it. I have tried the en. Kioskea.net link i seen in many posts and that is no help. Perhaps a clue is that i received a file directly from the source via email and the file ran fine. Seems to imply it's a downloading or .exe setting issue, but i am not savvy enough to figure it out.

Error Message - Cannot Retrieve Application List - Lexmark Printer

When i installed my lexmark x4650 printer i received a message saying "required system software not installed", microsoft.net framework version 2. 0 is required to continue. I went to microsoft to download and got a message that it was already installed on my computer. Now i can't get rid of the message telling me to get the software, (it pops up every time i turn on the computer) and i can't get the printer to scan to the computer.

I get a message on the printer that it  "cannot retrieve application list". The printer prints perfectly fine, but will not scan. I just installed the printer on a new computer and everything was working fine on the old one. The only thing different is this time i am wireless.

Error - Unloading The Box - The Application Cannot Find One Of Its Required Files

I bought the student windows 7 upgrade. When i downloaded the upgrade and tried to run it, it came up with an error: unloading the box - the application cannot find one of its required files, possibly because it was unable to create it in the folder. Please make sure that the folder in which this application was downloaded is accessible and not read-only. The files are not read-only and it took me several days to download the upgrade. My computer has all the needed specifications to run the download and windows advisor said i was able to upgrade vista to 7. The upgrade is the 32 bit version for my 32 bit system.

*.msi Not A Valid Win32 Application Error When Installing A Security Program

Whenever i try and install a security program i get the following: "*. Msi not a valid win 32 application". Noboby seems able to help. Vendors are all blaming another vendor. Meanwhile, i do not have any security on my computer. I am not terribly computer literate so please bear with me. I have rolled back, tried to run as an administrator, have downloaded software umpteen times (to satisfy vendors). This has something to do with microsoft installers. Anyone else had this problem?

Error Printer Sharing - Xp 32-bit To Win7 32-bit

I've recently installed windows 7 (32 bit) and i tried sharing my printer (which is connected to my windows xp 32 bit pc). Previously, i successfully did printer sharing on my vista (32 bit) system before it got upgraded to windows 7. However, when attempting to share the printer, i get the 0x0000000d error.

My printer: canon ip4680 pixma

What steps i did
On xp computer
- Right clicked on printer, clicked on "share" and gave it a name
- "Additional drivers" section has windows xp checked. I don't see a row for vista or win 7

On win 7 computer
- Clicked on "add printer"
- Saw and found my shared printer on my xp computer
- Double clicked to add printer
- Passed the "finding drivers" stage
- Reached the "finalizing installation" stage
- After about 10 seconds, the error message pops up

I have already reinstalled my win 7 driver and updated my xp driver to the latest version (v2. 20) [which can be found at http://support-sg. Canon-asia.com/contents/sg/en/0100138101.html]. I also tried the solution at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/947236 but to no avail.

Cannot Access A Application

When i tried to open a file it opened as usual and out of the windows bar came the normal screen but it kept going and stopped off screen. I can not see it on my desktop and i can not use a stacked windows option to select it. I can not move it since when i un-minimize it the screen pops up outside the view of the desktop. How do i drag the window back onto the desktop. I tried hovering over the icon right clicking it then move but when i left right or center click to drag it the cross bar disappears. I tried restarting it but it appears in the same place help?

Uninstalling An Application

I cannot uninstall a corel paint shop program. Even though i am the system administrator, i get the following message when i use the uninstall program: 'the system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation'. Then i get a message that says i do not have sufficient access.

The program did install and seems to run ok, but not when i try to start it up using the shortcut icon on the desktop. When i double click the icon i get a panel that contains this message: 'windows installer preparing to install', which doesn't make sense to me since the program is already installed. If i let it continue, i will eventually get a 'fatal error during installation' message.

I have had the same icon problem with turbo tax and hallmark card studio both of which are windows 7 compatible. I was able to fix them by deleting the shortcut icons generated by each program and creating my own shortcut from the application software on the hard drive.

Use Other Application To Scan

I'm using the dutch version of windows 7 home premium. When i click on "scan properties" in the context menu of a scanner, under the tab "events" there are no applications listed to handle scan data. When i press the scan button on my scanner (canon pixma mp250) windows asks which program i want to use but the list is empty. I have several applications that are capable of this, how can i tell windows to use them?

Please note that i don't want to use the manufacturer application, drivers are correctly installed though.

Restore / Recover Application Only

Does anyone know of a backup/restore/recovery program that allows for the backup/recovery/restoration of a program? While win7 home premium x64 bit allows for a single folder, file, or document recovery, it does not allow for a program only recovery option whether a full backup followed by incremental backups or a system image is performed?

My os is win 7 home premium x64bit, amd turion-tl 2. 0ghz processor, 4gbs ram, 7200 rpm 500gb hd

Multiple Os Install For An Application

I have & need multiple installations (xp/vista/win7, etc). I often have a program/package (e.g office 1993/office 2007) which needs to be installed on multiple oses. I know that i can use virtual pc to install everything in a virtual installation, but is it possible to use another drive (for example an external drive visible to all oses) to install the program just once (one installation instead of one per os, thus saving space). Obviously the registry would be held locally for each os installation, but does the physical installation need to be too? How is this affected by the program data folder in vista/win7?

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

Fast Access Application Will Not Upgrade

As i am going through the first cd in the installation kit it asks me to update fastaccess. When i click next it opens the installer but the only options are to modify, repair, or remove. The only option that it will allow me to click on is remove. In the windows 7 installer display it says that fastaccess must be upgraded in order to work with windows 7. I have tried clicking on the remove button and it appeared to remove the application which was not what it wanted. After i tried going to the run menu and bringing up the applications installer and reinstalling it but it exits immediately and says that there is an error. It does not give an error code.

Restore Application Data Shortcut

I have to admit i did this one to myself.

On the user profile (c:users
Ame) if you turn off the "hide protected operating system files" setting, it displays a number of "shortcuts". If these have been deleted, are there any way to restore them. It seems they are not really shortcuts but junctions.

What happens if i install a program that is still looking for the %application data% variable, it will create a directory on c:users
Ameapplication data instead of placing it on c:users
Amelocalroaming

Any help will be greatly appreciated to save me from myself.

Exe Not A Valid Win32 Application

I just received my hp dv6z from hp.com and turned it on and set everything up correctly i believe. I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable when it comes to computers but i can't figure this out. ".exe is not a valid win32 application" after every single time i want to go to setup of something also says "this installation package could not be opened" on some different files i'm trying to install. My downloads also do not complete all the time, they get to like 90% then stop going up.

Im running windows 7 and already reformatted once with the recovery thing only to come back to the same situation. Right when i get into the computer after setting it up after a reformat i have full access like a normal computer but then it starts to give me win32 error and download issues. I just transferred a downloaded file by usb from my workout computer to the new one that doesn't open files correctly and it works fine installing. Something with the download process is jacking up the file or something not sure!

Office 2003 Application Crashes

All, we're rolling out numerous desktop and laptop pcs /w win7 enterprise x74 (mostly new dell stuff) and with office 2003. (Upgrade is not an option at this time as we're a >5000 employees company)we're experiencing some strange appcrashes lately like in word 2003 when using it as e-mail editor in outlook. As soon as we close outlook, word crashes . This happens every time, so it's predictably. Starting outlook in safe mode w/o extensions didn't help. When word is open /w another document (from local disk or server share) then outlook can be started and stopped w/o any issues - so word only crashes if it's started with and stopped with outlook.

Another strange thing is excel dying in an appcrash randomly especially when using the clipboard to paste stuff into a cell. This is not predictable because we don't exactly know which action actually causes the behavior. This happens to fresh installations which are patched to the maximum available level (sp3 including all following patches).
