The Parameter is incorrect - Windows 10

Post by gsilver0 »

I had an old version of XPadder that worked fine, but I overwrote it with a new one. Since trying to upgrade, I have been unable to launch the program.

When I attempt to run it as an administrator, I get a "The parameter is incorrect" error.
If I attempt to run it without admin privileges, I get the error "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file"

I have tried downloading it multiple times, and running it from different locations.

Any tips?


I was able to run it if I disabled Panda Dome antivirus.

Have you tried renaming or deleting the xpadder.ini file?

The errors "The parameter is incorrect" and "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file" are general Windows error messages.
At this stage Xpadder has usually not even started.

Thank you for reporting that disabling Panda Dome fixed it - this is very useful to know.
A quick search shows that this issue occurs with other programs and Panda.
Panda should have an option to allow specific programs to run (Xpadder.exe) - this would allow Panda to continue scanning everything else.
