This  is first  post in Bleeping Computer and  I  am not very sure, if  I am in the appropriate  forum.

 

I  have  a  Win  7, 64 bit laptop.  Quite recently,  I made a  Vb  Script to  inform me through a message box on the  latest  Microsoft Security Essentials update  Definitions  and Scan details after  a  successful  update  and  Virus Scan.

As of now this Vb Script is  located in my C  Drive in a  separate Folder and is working as it ought to. I decided to   relocate this Vb Script to C:\ Program Files where Microsoft Security Essentials  is   downloaded by default. Whenever i make an attempt to do this, I get an error message saying that my   Vb Script [ showing  the path ]  cannot be found.... please  try again later. I copy pasted the  original script again on notepad, running as an Administrator, but still was unsuccessful. I must  mention that i was successful in  placing  two " Batch files "  in  C:\ Program Files\, without any problems.

Do I take it that  C:Program Files does not accept Vb Scripts to be placed there ?

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi,

 

I'm guessing that you're problem has to do with the 32bit/64bit duality. You're prolly running a 32bit process but the file is in 64bit %programfiles5 or vice versa. Then they won't find each other.
