I'm trying to open a programme that I have on a CD and can also download in compressed form from a web site.  It's a car maintenance manual.  I've taken the CD to my local computer shop and they could open it on their system, which shows that it works but I can't keep going down to the shop each time I want to fix the car!


Things that I have tried:


  • I copied the contents of the CD to my desk top.
  • I downloaded the eight, compressed (WinRAR archive) files to my hard drive.

With both of these routes I can get as far as a a list as follows:













Looks hopeful?  Unfortunately, whenever I click setup, I get the following error message:


"Unable to execute file:

C:users\Aidan\Documents\letter email etc\Car\Punto\Workshop manuals\elearn\elearn.exe

CreateProcess failed;code 2. The system couldn't find the file specified."


I've tried to run setup with my firewall/antivirus turned off but with no luck.

The link to the car forum is below.  There is a lot of boring stuff about service intervals for cars but it also has the link to the compressed files


Any help would be great, as it's proving more than a little frustrating!


I have Windows 10 installed.
