    Was just reading this thread from another forum reporting the same error :

    http://www.computing.net/windows95/wwwboard/forum/5579.html

    Below is a copy / paste of one reply to the person with the error. It seems you may need to restore file association as outlined :

    The solution that you are looking for is not the same as the problem you are reporting. To resolve this "Unable to Locate Program.exe" you should try to simply Re-Associate the file with a different program. For example. Let's say that whenever you open a .jpg document, you get that error. Just go into Windows Explorer>> Folder Options>>File Types, and edit the registered file type that is associated with JPG. Obviously, Windows is being told to use program.exe to open JPG files. Just tell Windows to use a different program such as Internet Explorer, or Download some shareware program such as LView Pro, and use that. Forget about Program.exe altogether. It's throwing off your concentration. One more point of advice. DON'T ERASE EXE FILES TO SAVE SPACE! EXE files are probably amongst the smallest files on your drive. Larger files that will clear space might include installed games, picture libraries, or collections of sounds, or movies. Hope this helps... END.
