Misconception # 3 "the system does not have the specified path.

How to troubleshoot issues that may occur when you install, uninstall, or upgrade one program on a Windows computer

Method 2:

You can also try running a Scan SFC (System File Checker):
SFC/scannow is a very useful command that you can use in any version of Windows. When the SFC (System File Checker) command is used with the/scannow switch, the tool analyzes all the important files of Windows on your computer and replace if necessary.

Missing and the corruption of the operating system (like many DLLs) files are probably the main cause of the major problems of Windows. In view of this, plus the fact that the SFC /scannnow is completely automatic and very easy to use, the tool should be usually one of your top not troubleshooting.
