    Hi and welcome. Is this a message that you are receiving? If so, when? Or what are you doing when it happens?

    when i turn on the machine this is the message that comes up cannot fine the file wpsload.exe(or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraties are available. Then i push ok and than this one comes up Could not load or run wpsload.exe specified in the WIN.INI file. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the WIN.INI file. Then i click ok and it leaves screen, but on the tool bar on bottom the setup.exe file is open and nothing is in it. Tried looking for the files and cannot find them.

    load=WPSLOAD.EXE

    Windows printing system that comes with the setup for Canon BJC series on the manufacturer's disk.

    Start the computer in Safe mode by tapping F8 during startup. Once in Safe Mode go to Start->Run, type Win.ini and click Ok. Scroll down to the line Load=WPSLOAD.EXE. put a semicolon at the beginning of the line. For example:

    ;Load=WPSLOAD.EXE

    Save the changes and restart the computer.

    Change that line, as mentioned before, place a ; in front of it, save changes and reboot.

    Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the Windows Folder and locate the Win.ini file. Right Click on it and remove the Read Only Attribute, Click Ok. Try again.
