windows 7 pro %sysroot% errors
after much debate with my boss i convinced him to upgrade a few of our PCs to Windows 7 professionsal.
But I have a problem.....
all the icons in my accessories foler are not there and the links broken.
if i try to launch, say the snipping tool i get the following error message.....
the name '%windir&\snippingtool.exe' specified in the target box is not valid. Make sure the path and file name are correct.
if i go into the properties and change the path to C:\System32......
the application will run however the icon is still lost.
I also have a problem if i goto control panel>programs and features and click on the turn windows features on/off tab
does anyone know how to fix these issues???
they are very annoying especially as i have only had the OS installed for 1 DAY!!!!!!!!!
