Windows Cannot Find Make Sure You Typed The Name Correctly

I have bought Alienware 17 laptop. Win 7 didn"t have the network driver so I went to download them from Dell. I then downloaded the driver and copied it to Alien over the USB. But when I run it (by clicking right mouse button and Run as Administrator) I am getting weird message.

Windows can not find C:\Network_Driver... Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Which makes zero sense as I am running it not from command prompt but via windows shell.

UPDATE:Tried running from command linegot error that file in not x64 compatible, says its 16-bit application. Same file on other machine runs just fine.

Has anyone encountered something similar before? Why am I getting this message? Can it indicate hardware problem?

16-bit applications can only run on a 32-bit verisons of Windows. Because you"re attempting to run it on a 64-bit version it"s not being allowed to run.

I would suggest you to scan your pc using software like Malware Bytes, HijackThis and Combofix (and with your antivirus too). You can try to rename your file to something other too, like "a.exe" (maybe there"s a name-related issue)
