Windows 7: Not providing a valid folder name

21 Mar 2014   #1

Win7 x64 & XP
Not providing a valid folder name

W7, sp1, no hotfixes, x64, hidden (or super) Admin. account

I'm getting this error;
Windows is not providing a valid folder name for the "Common Desktop" folder. I tried several searches, but it's such a odd error message. I could see a message that it couldn't find a folder, but not providing a proper name?

The program that is giving me the error is ThumbsPlus V8. I have installed at least 25 other programs prior to this error with little issue (other than it's W7). I un-installed V8 and installed V7 of the same program with no error.

Any guess what that error message is suppose to mean?
