Windows cannot find make sure you typed the name correctly

I have sầu bought Alienware 17 máy tính. Win 7 didn"t have the network driver so I went khổng lồ tải về them from Dell. I then downloaded the driver & copied it lớn Alien over the USB. But when I run it (by clicking right mouse button and Run as Administrator) I am getting weird message.

Bạn đang xem: Windows cannot find make sure you typed the name correctly

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

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

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

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