When you try to run an .exe file, windows will appear with a warning saying I don't have permission to use the file... and yet I used it earlier that day and no changes have been made on the computer
I'm a gamer, I play world of Warcraft. A week ago, the shortcut of this game that was created through disk began to have a popup alert indicating * Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You can not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.* thing is, it was working fine a few weeks ago and no changes to the computer or the security settings. So I created a shortcut using the .exe directly instead of that the game gives us. Now yesterday I've played, got off, went to practice, returned, and it was blocked. There are no other files (that I know) have this problem, it's the unique. I am running vista Home Premium service pack 2 of the of the window on a relatively new dell 32-bit processor. I have absolutely no idea as to what caused this... anyone have an idea? Thank you.
If you uninstall Norton, you can reinstall and your subscription will remain current. Just make sure that you are using the Norton removal tool to uninstall. You can find on their Web site. You also mentioned McAfee on your system. If you have not used the removal tool they provide that I suggest to go to get it and run it before removing Norton. I heard about problems caused by one of these programs being not entirely removed by using only the normal uninstall option.
Also if you have not already done, right click on the file that you run and choose "Run as Administrator" and see if that makes a difference. Mike - Engineer Support Microsoft Answers

Error message: "the version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows that you are using", when you try to run an old ms - based back program in Win-7 Ultimate 64 bit.

I get this message when you try to run an old MS-DOS - based program in Win-7 Ultimate 64-bit.
"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you are using. Check your computer system information to see whether you need a x 86 (32 bit) or x 64 (64-bit) version of the program and then contact the software publisher. »
I understand that I am under a 64 bit OS, but is it possible to get this program to run? I was wondering if anyone has tips :)
Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.
Based on the information, you are trying to install and use an old ms - dos program based in Windows-7 Ultimate 64-bit.
The problem is a software that was created for Windows 95, 98, and Windows XP has no way to work correctly with an operating system that didn't even exist when the software was written. However, the error message you get normally means that you have a 32-bit software that you are trying to install on a 64-bit system.
You can check the compatibility of the program with Windows 7, in the Compatibility Center.
If the program is not compatible, then you try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.
a. click right on the program.
b. click Properties.
c. click on the tab compatibility.
d. Select run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or whatever to use the system, the program was executed successfully.
Here is an article that gives you more information on this:
If the problem persists, you can get in touch with the software vendor to see for the latest version of the program to use the same system of 64-bit Windows 7.
Hope the helps of information.
If you need assistance in the future to resolve any issues related to Windows, post your query and we will be happy to help you.
