Unable to Access All Users Profile

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have a laptop with Ubuntu 11.04, a desktop computer with Windows XP and a notebook with Virtual book 4.1.2. I am trying to install the window programs and I got this error message 'could not access the network location %ALLUSERSPROFILE%/start menu/programs/administrative tools'. I have tried to fix this error but I always failed. I need help please.
