Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this picture because you don't have permission to access the location of the file

I reinstalled my computer using the same disk of win7 recovery for sale.

But I found files in the folder (windows.old) could not open, even the files could be moved to a new place.

I could review the authorization of certain files, but several folders could not be revised approval, which include many files of images or movie files.

I want to know how to solve the problem (you might consider the photos and movies could be challenged).

Thank you!

  • Photo Gallery can't open this picture because you do not have permission to the location of the file asscess

    I had to format my pc yesterday and I can't access my photos on my hardrive 2ndry can anyone help this is the message I get when I try to view them
    Photo Gallery can't open this picture because you do not have permission to the location of the file asscess RJ

    I recently started having the SAME problem. Windows Photo Viewer working wonder in the past months on the same exact images without any problems.

    I suspect that Microsoft update the code somewhere which pushed as an update - what is now the cause of the problem.

    As a diagnosis, I tried with the right button "open with...". "and chose the paint. The same file opened without any problem.

    All the pictures are generated for all images without problem.

    Still, Windows Photo Viewer cannot display ALL my image files. Paint has no problem.

    Similarly, right click 'open with... '. "and choose Microsoft Office 2010. Loading the image without any problems.

    If the original poster has the same success using other programs - then the problem is with the Windows Photo Viewer - Microsoft of not having it recognize permissions for the code or something.

    It's on Windows 7 Professional 64 - bit. Latest updates applied Microsoft.

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this file because the file seems to be corrupted, damaged or too big.

    I am on Windows 7 and using Photo Viewer to watch 5 tiff files. I can open all tiff files in photoshop or psp, but not in photoviewer. Here, I can open only 2 smaller files. Is there a limit of size on the photo viewer (it seems). The files that I can not open are 1.45

    a. like you said that the size of file that 1.45, could you give the exact size in MB, GB or KB?
    b. Since the photoviewer is used to display basic tiff files, if the file contains additional metadata information that can not be played on photoviewer it could give you the error message.
    1 copy these pictures on another computer in Windows 7 and check if the files open.
    2. you can also try to change the file format and check if it converts in this format and it opens correctly.
    You can see the following article on changing the file format.
    I hope this helps.

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this photo because either way, Photo Viewer does not support this file format, either you do not have the latest updates to Photo Viewer

    New PC with Windows 7.  Photos taken before the new PC either cannot be a spectator, or can be displayed but are in the right folder with the incorrect file names (e.g. cat photo is labeled as DOG)

    In my case, when I plugged in my phone on my desk, it prompted me to update the software to communicate better with my phone. Immediately after completing the update was when I lost the ability to open images in Photo Viewer.

    To solve the problem, I went to control panel, and then uninstall a program and then uninstalled the newest program associated with my phone. It was easy since I knew exactly when he started to act up. Some of you may need some trial and error to find the problem.

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this photo because Photo Viewer does ' t support this file format, or you do not have the latest updates to Photo Viewer

    Others have had problems similar to mine and I read all the posts but nothing seems to solve my problem.

    I saved a bunch of pictures in a folder on an external flash drive that were originally attachments in e-mail messages. They run very well on the disc and I opened and one closed the reader a couple of times but now I can't seem to open it in the viewer of photos or any other viewers. I have other pictures on the same drive in other folders and they open without any problems.

    The first time it happened I display thumbnails but could not open them. I just insterted my flash drive to see what was going on, and now I can see only 3 thumbnails on a total of about 50 photos. A lot of disk space too.

    Any suggestions anyone. Thanks a lot if you can try to help him.

    Hello pentax12,

    It should not make difference if the folder has been shared or not to see the photos.
    I suggest you see if you can copy them to the hard drive and then try to open in the Gallery of photos or a different default viewer.

    Let us know.

    Thank you

  • Forbidden - you don't have permission to access on this server

    Recently, I cloned git a customer Web site and I need to work on that, but when I try to open it via mamp or ampps a message appears:

    Forbidden you don't have permission to access the 'websitename"/application/index.html on this server.

    I did extensive research and everyone says to change the permissions on httpd.conf , but nothing happened. I tried to reinstall and nothing more. If I navigate through the terminal in the folder of the Web site, I have all the permissions.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    It is difficult to understand your configuration, but you try to run the web site locally? If so, the url is localhost/websitename/application/index.html or whatever the path to the root of your document...

    Original title: cannot access files on a folder on the drive hard usb after you have turned off sharing on a network.

    About a week and a half, I have set up my external hard drive usb to share on my network domestic as well as my brother could access some files on his laptop computer.  I've been playing with the security of some of the files on the hard drive and made sure that he could not access some of them.  I don't remember exactly what I did unfortunately.  After I had changed the security access, I was still able to access all files and my brother could not access it.  He got the files on the hard drive and I turned off my computer.  A few days later, I tried to access the files that I had limited and I was stuck.  When I went back in the drive to recover some files, I received an error "you don't have permission to access this folder.  Click on continue to have access to this folder permanently. "When I click on continue that another dialogue box comes up saying"you refused permission to access this folder.  To access this file you will need to use the Security tab. "I click on the link to Security tab and another dialog box appears asking"to continue, you must be an administrative user with permission to view this object's security properties.  Do you want to continue? "I'm obviously the administrator because I have this computer and I'm the only account on it.  From this point, I don't know what I do or what I'm supposed to do to recover my files.  I played a bit with a couple of things and I was able to get into certain folders, but its an extremely long process that I don't have the time for.  A side effect of which in fact so I can see the files, is that for any movie file, I try to access it, I get an error.  When I try to open it with Windows Media Player, I get the error "Windows Media Player cannot access the file.  The file may be in use (which is not the case), you won't have access to the computer where the file is stored (which is not supposed to because the computer on which it is stored my personal computer), or your proxy settings are may not be not correct (what?). "If I try to use another program like VLC media player, I get a similar problem where an error comes up saying that it was impossible to access the file.  I can see the file and see the properties but I am unable to actually see the film.  I can't move the file anywhere because I don't have administrative rights.  I'm under Windows 7 Ultimate, and if someone could help me please, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Ridley,

    I see that this problem is old enough but you (or others) may have problems with it. Here's what I did:
    -Got to your hard drive and right click on the folder that is causing all the trouble.
    -Click on properties.
    -Click on the Security tab
    -Then click on advanced
    -You will see a window with a few user names. Now click on owner in the tabs above.
    -Click on edit, then select the user name you want to open the folder and don't forget to tick the box that says "Replace the owner of subcontainers and objects", then click on apply.
    A pop will come which says something like "You have replaced the property for the selected records" or something in this way. It worked for me and I hope this post is helpful for some people.
  • "You don't have permission to access to" a computer - Windows 7

    Now, I have 3 laptops in my house.  We're on Windows 7 (let's call it W7) and two are on Vista (we'll call V1 and V2).  On my Windows 7, I can connect (via the network - all PC use the same Linksys wireless router) v1 without problem and see shared files, but I can't connect to V2.  I get the message "you don't have permission to access \\PCName."  Now if I put in place a different id user on W7, I can access the V1 and V2.  I need to stick with my original if possible user id, because this is where I've already implemented a large number of programs that I need for work.

    Any ideas on what could be going on with my original user id?  He worked two weeks ago, although I added a few programs as I finally tried access V2.  Thank you!

    You can 'stick with your original user "; just add it to the machine of V2. See point c below for more details:

    Problems sharing files between computers on a network are usually caused by 1) a misconfigured firewall or a firewall neglected (including a dynamic firewall in a virtual private network); or (2) inadvertently run two firewalls such as the firewall of Windows and a third-party firewall. and/or (3) do not have accounts to the same users and passwords on all computers in the workgroup. (4) tries to create actions where the operating system does not.

    In Windows 7, go to control panel > everything in Control Panel > network and sharing Center. Click on "change the advanced sharing settings. You don't want to use the residential group unless you have all Windows 7 machines. If you do and you want to use the homegroup, see Windows 7 Help & Support. Otherwise, in sharing advanced:

    Discovery of plug in the network
    Open the files and printers sharing
    Turn on the sharing section Public folder sharing
    Plug the password protected sharing

    A. configure the firewall on all machines to allow traffic to local area network (LAN) as being approved. With the Windows Firewall, turning on window file sharing and printer as the above will take care of that for you. If you are not running a third-party firewall or you have an antivirus/security with its own firewall component program, then you're fine.  With a third-party firewall, I usually set up the allocation of LAN with an IP address range. E.g. would be - Obviously you would substitute your correct subnet. Refer to the safety of any third party program or the user forums for how to correctly configure its firewall. Do not run more than one firewall. DON'T STOP FIREWALLS; CONFIGURE THEM CORRECTLY.

    (B) to facilitate the Organization, put all computers in the same workgroup. This is done from the System applet in Control Panel, the computer name tab.

    C. create the counterpart of the user accounts and passwords on all machines. You do not need to be logged into the same account on all machines and assigned to each user account passwords can be different; accounts/passwords just need to exist and to match on all machines. DO NOT NEGLECT TO CREATE PASSWORDS, EVEN IF ONLY OF SIMPLE. If you want a machine to boot directly to the desktop (a particular user account) for convenience, you can do this:

    Start > Search box > type: netplwiz [Enter]
    Click continue (or provide an administrator password) when you are prompted by UAC

    Uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to connect automatically by clicking on the account you want to highlight and press OK. Enter the password for this user account (when it exists) when you are prompted. Leave blank if there is no password (null). MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open *.tif files

    Hi Windows Photo Viewer don't open no * tif files on computers Dell desktop running Windows Pro 8.1 and Windows 7 Professional.

    Do not use a drive.

    Tried system restore, but does not solve the problem.

    Windows posted a temporary fix (, but recommended "If you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend you wait for the next software update, which will include this fix."

    Windows finally gets out the permanent fix for users?  Still waiting.

    The patch in KB2635500 appears directed at problems with files TIF MultiPage (usually of the faxes).  Do you do business with?  You get the error message that is mentioned in the article?

    If this isn't the case, what exactly happens when you try to open a single TIF file (non-multi-site)?  Is it just does not open or you get an error message?  If the latter, what is the full text of the error message?

    It is possible that the Windows System File Checker can solve this problem.  Open an elevated command prompt (right click > run as administrator) and enter the command:
