    System cannot find file specified error while installing applications


    So, I am using Windows 10 Build 1803. I have been facing this issue lately that an error occurs when installing or opening an app : "The System cannot find the file specified". I got this issue while installing Razer Game Manager, uninstalling Google Chrome, Installing updates for some Dell Softwares. Is there any solution to this problem as the same error occurs in all those applications. so seems like something with Windows. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    PS. I am attaching an screenshot of the error below.

    :)

  2. WMPlayer win32 error

    List the EXACT "blah, blah" you mention, here please... for ALL installation cases!

    (Sound like a possible "DLL-Hell" issue, but "Windows File Protection" &/or "System File Protection" should have countered for this... no biggie, there's ways around that too!)

    *Smile System cannot find file specified error while installing applications :)

    * I have to 'step-out' now, but imo, this is the track to pursue here, & we will when I get back... so, please list that data I request!

  3. Error: "Windows couldn't complete the requested changes", "The system cant find the file specified" on Windows 10

    Recently I purchased a game called rust. I have received an error saying

    "Windows couldn't complete the requested changes"

    "The system cant find the file specified"

    I already tried this:

    Let’s try simple troubleshooting steps and check if this helps in resolving the issue. I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the
    .NET Framework 3.5. Follow the below steps.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Control Panel.


    • Click on Programs and features, click on
      Turn Windows features on or off on the left pane.

    • Click on .NET Framework 3.5 on the Window pop up to expand.

    • Uncheck the box and check on Ok.
    • To re-install it back check on the box and click on OK.
    Also, I suggest you to install all the Windows update.

    so please don't reply with this. (same thing popped up)

    Please help me! I would greatly appreciate it!

  4. System cannot find file specified error while installing applications

    File System error

    Hi Kevin,

    The error message "File system error (-1073741515)" is usually occurring if the system detected that there are some missing components within the program that is trying to be launched. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need you to answer the
    following questions:

    • Which build, version and edition of Windows is installed on your device?
    • What changes have you made to your computer before this issue occurred?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    In the meantime, we suggest running the Windows Update and install the available updates on your device. It will be best to perform this when your device is in safe mode. Restart your computer once the updates are successfully installed and then check if
    the same issue persists.

    We are looking forward to your response.
