Internet Download Manager Fails to launch on Windows 7

Asked By 15 points N/A Posted on -

Hello Everyone,

I downloaded and installed the Internet Download Manager for windows 7. When I try to launch this application, Windows shows an error message stating that it cannot access the specified device or path as I do not have the appropriate permissions. I find this strange because, I am the only user on this computer and I have full access permissions on it. However I tried unblocking access to the executable. And this I tried by right clicking on the executable to access its properties and clicking the unblock button from the general tab. After completing this step, I tried running the application, ensuring that I was logged in as the administrator. However, this did not solve the problem. Now, why is the access being denied? Please can anyone suggest possible reasons? Any help towards solving this issue will be greatly appreciated. Regards

This looks like some trouble with the permission of your UAC. Do as what I say.

1. Download latest Internet Download Manager.

2. Find out that the file exists on your system because if any file/folder is not present, this same type of error might occur.

3. Manually check the folder “C:Program Files 9×86)Internet download Manger”.

  • Right-click on “IDMan.exe” and select “Copy”.
  • On desktop, right-click and select “Paste Shortcut”.

Launch the program using this shortcut.

4. If you have got any antivirus or firewall program, disable it or make exception for your program’s file or path.

Also, there are other methods to solve this type of issue. Check this Microsoft KB.
