The Specified Path Does Not Exist. AKA the WTF factor in Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok info: Dell D620 was on XP upgraded to Vista Business. 1 Gig ram, Intel video, Core Duo 1.66 100 Gig disk. Newest drivers and bios from Dell or Microsoft (which ever's newer)

    Problem: After Suspend or Hibernation I will get "The specified path does not exist" for things I want to do in control panel or for any exe files I might like to run. I get the feeling this is due to the new "security" feature where it ask you if you want to run something or do something.

    Anyhow this is a big big issue because I use hibernate and suspend a lot. To top it off cause it's OEM version microsoft doesn't seems to have support avaliable online. So I can't even inform them of this issue.

    Update: It's happening even without suspending... ummm big bug.

  • Go into your control panel and to user accounts, and turn off user account control messages.  That will fix your wtf problem. =) 


    Gotak, you were pretty right on when you said you thought it had something to do with the new security features.
