    I get this error whenever I excute some of the programs under windows 98SE and windows ME.

    I did a virus scan on my computer and everything was fine.

    So is it the program itself that's faulty or am I using an OS that's too old.

    Will it work if I use windows2000 or XP ?

    Thanks :)

    It's really quite difficult to say:?:
    Are these files you recently downloaded? Files you have used before that refuse to work now?
    Maybe you copied them to a disk and since reintroducing them to the system they don't execute?

    Just doggone hard to put my finger on it at this point.

    But, you could try DL'ing again. copying again. maybe they are just lame files and you should try to get the same file from an alternative source.

    Are they for Windows 98/ME?

    I'm just full of questions ain't I:confused:

    Yeah lots of questions are there cos not enough info is provided.
    so here's another q...
    in your post you said...
    "I get this error whenever I excute some of the programs" and later you said that "is it the program"...i mean are u talking about this happening with lots of programs or just one file.
    The way you mentioned the error...i feel that its with just one program and most probably its cos of a bad download.
    Follow Mr. C's advice and try d/l ing from a mirror or alternate site.
