Windows cannot find file...Make sure you type the name correctly and try again?


  • I try to install games with .exe files and "run as admin".

    When I type in the password CORRECTLY, it comes up with: 

    Windows cannot find the file.. make sure you type the file name correctly... and yeah

    It is getting pretty frustrating. Please help me fix this and open my file.


    Also, i cannot manage another account or change account type when i am on a standard account.

    I entered the password the run as an admin but, nothing pops up.


    Lastly, I cannot log onto the admin account but only the standard accounts.

  • Hi,

    Error "Windows cannot find file" indicates the previous version of the games contains corrupt registry.

    Suggestion is that either find the corrupt registry or create new user account.

    However, you cannot log on to the admin account. This is the biggiest issue. I would like to confirm if you have typed the password wrong. If the issue is there is no admin account, please log on to Safe Mode and check if you can log on to the build-in account.
