Question Not a valid Win32 application

Not a valid Win32 application.

Often this error message will be similar to the below error message.

C:\Program Files\myprogram\program.exe is not a valid Win32 application.


This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.

  1. File is corrupt, bad, or missing.
  2. File is not designed for your version of Windows.
  3. File is a virus, worm, or other malware file.
  4. Hardware incompatibility.


File is corrupt, bad, or missing

If the file or program you’re attempting to run is corrupt or missing, Windows will be unable to execute the file properly and sometimes generate this error message.

Download files

If you downloaded this file and verified it is complete and compatible with your version of Windows, delete the file and try downloading and running it again. It’s possible during the download that the file became corrupted.

Finally, if the second download does not work, try downloading the file from a different webpage. It is possible that the person or company maintaining the website mistakenly uploaded a corrupt version of the file you’re attempting download.

Installing a program from a CD or other disk

If you’re attempting to install a program and are getting this error, verify that the CD is clean. If the CD is dirty or bad, you could get this error during the install or after the program has been installed because it was not copied properly onto the computer.

Running a program from the computer

If you’re running the program from a shortcut on the computer, verify that the program is still on the computer. In some cases if the program is no longer installed on the computer you may get this error.

If the hard disk drive is corrupted or bad it can also cause working programs to fail either because not all the data can be read from the hard disk drive or because the program has become corrupted while on the drive. Run scandisk and defrag on the hard disk drive to check for any potential errors.

Long file name issue

Make sure the program or file you’re attempting to run does not contain the same name as the long file name directory it is contained in. For example, executing a file named “program” in the “program files” directory can cause errors in some versions of Windows.

Additionally, if you’re attempting to install a program and after the install the program does not work, you may also want to try installing the program in a different directory.

Bad file

Any file can be changed or renamed to be a .exe file. If you’re downloading the file, make sure the file is supposed to be a .exe file and that it’s not being changed. If you’re attempting to create a .exe, file make sure you’re compiling the file for Windows and never just rename a file to a .exe file. For example, renaming a .bat file to a .exe file will not make the file an executable file. For a file to become an executable file it needs to either be compiled or converted through a software program designed to convert the file.

Counter-Strike (CS) is a tactical first-person shooter video game which originated from a Half-Life modification.The game is currently the most played Half-Life modification in terms of players, according to GameSpy.

Download Counter Strike 1.6

Counter-Strike is a first-person shooter in which players join either the terrorist or counter-terrorist team (or become a spectator). Each team attempts to complete their mission objective and/or eliminate the opposing team. Each round starts with the two teams spawning simultaneously, usually at opposite ends of the map from each other. A player can choose to play as one of eight different default character models (four for each side, although Counter-Strike: Condition Zero added two extra models, bringing the total to ten). Players are generally given a few seconds before the round begins (known as “freeze time”) to prepare and buy equipment, during which they cannot attack or walk/move (a player can still take damage, having the player drop from a certain height during freeze time was the only way somebody could control the players starting “HP”). They can return to the buy area within a set amount of time to buy more equipment (some custom maps included neutral “buy zones” that could be used by both teams). Once the round has ended, surviving players retain their equipment for use in the next round; players who were killed begin the next round with the basic default starting equipment.

Basic Requirements:

* OS: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7
* CPU: 800 MHz
* RAM: 128 MB
* Video: 32 MB
* Mouse & Keyboard
* Internet or Network Connection

 This topic is not for gizmo geeks, but useful for starters who have just bought a new mobile phone and don’t know on how to upload stuffs in their cell phone. It’s not a tough task to upload ring tones, wallpapers and mobile games in your new cell phone.

1) Mobile to Mobile Transfer : If you have a friend/relative who has a cell phone with bluetooth or infrared, and your mobile supports bluetooth/infrared, then you can transfer the content between each other. Just select bluetooth while sending a file. You can also share each other’s mobile data card to transfer the content – from memory card to phone memory.

2) Computer to Mobile Transfer : Other option is to download ringtones, games and wallpapers first on your computer from various internet sites or CDs. Then you can transfer this content from your computer into your mobile using
– Inbuilt bluetooth (usually comes in a laptop nowadays) or Bluetooth dongle
– Infrared – not much famous now
– Data cable (remember, you have a supported data cable, every cell phone requires specific data cable depending on the model. But nowadays, most of the phone supports mini-USB cable )
– Data Card – If you have a removable memory card, then insert your card in a data card reader and transfer the content. Similar to writing on a floppy disk. Data card reader is available in the market, many latest laptops have inbuilt card reader.

3) Mobile Internet : One more option is via mobile GPRS services. If you have GPRS services activated on your mobile phone, you can download content from mobile sites (usually beginning with http://wap. ). Some sites are chargeable while some are free – so take care here.
