When i try to open an HTML (default Mozilla 2.0 updated) file or a Solidworks file (.sldprt, sldasm, slddrw extensions.) by double clicking the file or right-click... open, i get the following error.

Windows cannot find 'C:\File\path'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.

The error does not occur if i hit OK on the message and click the file a 2nd time. Also the error does not occur all the time if the program is already open and never occurs if i use the OPEN command in either program.

I am using Solidworks Student 2006 4.1 w/Cosmos and Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and its updated. Also my Windows is fully updated. My OS is Windows XP Home SP2.

Any help to resolve this issue? The file associations arent broke either i checked that.

My machine does this as well. To my understanding, it is a firefox bug, though it was supposed to be fixed in recent versions. Apparently they didnt.



EDIT: I found this, may be useful ;)
