[SOLVED] Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Program\ProgramName.exe

Hi there,

I was attempting to start a program called TeamViewer but it wouldn't startup. After running the program as admin, it gave me the following error:

As you can see the application is clearly there even tough Windows cannot find the program/directory. I tried re-installing/moving the folder but this didn't help.

In my case I solved this problem by doing the following:

Go to: 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options

delete the key labeled "teamviewer.exe"

this also applies to windows cannot find skype.exe,just replace teamviewer.exe with skype.exe...

This probably also applies to other programs with the same problem.
