the vital files needed for your visual basic to run normally may have been destroyed by some virus; I would advice you to reinstall the program.

Hey Pal! First you need to check the path of the file you are trying to access. Did you in any way design the VB application that is trying to access the file in another computer and you migrated it into your computer? If so, the earlier VB code was written to direct the application into located the said file in ‘C:temp’ folder. I would strongly advice that you try and move this application from your current location and paste a copy of it in the ‘C:temp’ folder and see whether anything changes and that the error disappears. Also, try and make sure that file indeed exists in this ‘C:temp’ directory. If you do not want to move or copy your application to the ‘C:temp’ directory, try and adjust the code to direct the application access the said file from your preferred directory. I hope this resolves your issue. Regards.
