Cannot delete lpt1: The parameter is incorrect Ant Renamer

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I am using a software called Ant Renamer.
I have been using this software to rename the files and folders with ease and not having to go to each and every location to perform the same action.
But today I got this error message when I am trying to delete a specific folder.
I haven’t faced this error message before and am not sure what could have gone wrong.
Cannot delete lpt1: The parameter is incorrect.
I have this installed on my Windows XP SP3 machine.

These are some steps on creating an undeletable folder.

Follow these steps carefully:

  1. Click on the start button and click on Run.
  2. Type CMD on the space.
  3. The command prompt window will appear on your screen. This time you will decide which drive you must make the folder. For example, if you want to create the folder in drive D, then should type D: and press enter.
  4. Now that you have reached drive D, you type MDLPT1\, press enter.
  5. After doing that, a folder will now be created in drive D. If you will try to deleted or rename the folder that has been created, this warning will appear “Cannot delete lpt1: The parameter is incorrect”.

Next is how to delete the folder created.:

  1. You need to open command prompt again.
  2. Go to the drive that you created the folder, in our case, drive D.
  3. Type RDLPT1\, press enter.
  4. This time you can now delete and rename the folder.

I hope this will come very useful to you.
