Windows Error n.5

Discussion in 'alt.windows7.general' started by Manfred Wirobski, Apr 27, 2012.

  1. I ordered a software and had to extract the file received. Then I tried to
    create a floppy disk for my organ from this data.
    But unfortunatially it did not work yet.

    Whenever the EXE-program tried to create the disk image it asked for a
    floppy. Then the program should format the floppy and prepare the image for
    the organ. At this point in time I get the message "Windows Error n5"
    I tried this with 2 different PCs, with different operating systems (Win-XP
    and Win7), and with different disks but without success.
    When ever I tried to write or read this disk or to reformat it with Win7, I
    get the message from the system that the disk cannot be used anymore and I
    hat to scrap it.

    Is this an known problem?

    What I would try.

    Open the folder in Explorer that holds the executable file.
    Right-click on the file and select "Run as Administrator".
    Now, the program runs with more permissions than you
    were previously giving it.

    This isn't the exact example I want, but it illustrates
    a right-click context menu with "Run as administrator"
    option in it.

    OK, here is another solution. Remove the floppy from the drive,
    run the program. Let it prompt you to install the floppy diskette.
    Then, let the program continue.

    "Windows error N.5 access denied"

  5. In the meantime, I had the opportunity to use another old PC with Windows
    Professional 2000 installed.
    I could not believe it, but here it worked. Since I rarely use the floppy
    drive, I will make no further effort to solve the problem.
    I thank you Paul, for your information and hints.

    A solution...

    The disk image was most probably made with WinImage. If so download the latest version of WinImage, WinImage 8.5 for Windows 7, and open the disk image file from WinImage. This will get you to the image which you can now write to a floppy.

    The problem is the self extracting image has an issue with Windows 7 or a USB floppy drive or both.

    With WinImage 8.5 you could now make a working self-extracting disk image.

    I had the same error. Time and time again. Reformat. Tried like 7 different floppies. I took "Manfred Wirobski" advice and pulled out an old laptop that was running XP on it. WALA!!! WHAT DO YOU KNOW! It worked perfectly. No more errors. An easy fix to this problem is to run image on an older operating system that is not 7.
