Check to see if your hard disc is formatted NTFS. this file system is readable by Win NT and XP. A 16 bit subsystem is a Win 95 standard and may be able only able to address a fat32 disc. The error sounds like it can not see or write to a temp file.
I know there have been several post reguarding the 16 bit windows subsystem, but none of them are in reguards to my particular problem.
I go to use any program considered 16 bit, or made prior to Win XP and I get this error. This is a recent problem, I believe due to a virus. The error I get includes
16 bit Windows Subsystem
C:\DOCUM~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\. A temporary file needed for initialization could not be created or could not be written to. Make sure that the directory path exists, and disk space is available. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
Any help or links would be greatly appreciated! This is killing me!
