Post-Startup Errors

Just because Windows starts correctly doesn't mean you're home free. The following sections discuss the causes and solutions for typical errors you might see after the system starts.

Invalid working directory Error

If a Windows or MS-DOS program is set to use a folder that isn't available, the Invalid working directory error might be displayed.

The following are solutions to this error:

  • Adjust the program's operation to use a folder that is available using the program's properties sheet.

  • If the working folder is on a network drive, make sure the user is logged on the network.

  • If the working folder is a removable-media drive, the user must insert the correct disk or CD-ROM before starting the program.
