Whenever I try to run a program that is not installed (like an installer), I get a message telling me that the file cannot be found and permissions may be incorrect. I have checked the folder permissions and there are no problems there. Anyone else had this problem, and is there any way to fix it without doing a system partition restore, which would be a pain as I have quite a few custom services set up

Never mind, I found a fix at http://www.homeserverland.com/wiki/w/whs/windows-cannot-access-specified-path-or-file-permissions.aspx


Strange that I never used to have to unblock programs, but at least it's an easy fix.

Just wondering what you were trying to install when you hit the problem?

I think it was VMware, but I'm not 100% sure now.
