Missing file of the application- Try to uninstall and install again yahoo messenger, its better way and easy way to install missing file than to find Google what’s missing to your application and you install it manually.

Path on the error message means is the location where your yahoo messenger was installed or the actual executable of yahoo messenger application is missing.

Path not found error message happens when the file being executed is missing. Reason for this is you might be accidentally deleted the application or you have created a shortcut in your desktop or anywhere in your start menu, task bar or drives, then you have un-installed the application.

Basically, the file could not be found anymore so nothing to execute that is why your operating system reported an error message saying the path was not found. Accidentally deletion of the executable file is possible for these reasons.

Re-install your yahoo messenger to solve this problem.
