    Ok, from what I understand, this is a exe movie file that was created by some kind of editor. Before it starts, it access to temp file and then the movie runs. All computers are windows XP; some of them are having problem.

    Ok,New topic

    I can't play movie.
    Try copying the file(s) to your hard drive.
    What are they named ? Movies don't end in *.exe.
    Where did you get it ?
    Please answer the above if you want help.

    thank you Zipperman, the movies are .mov file, and it starts with a exe file at the beginning. we need this CDs to run on different XP machines. I spoke to someone about that, and he told me temp files are sometimes restricted in computers under domain. So I am giving the users of the machines, the Administrative previledge, but still their is problem. It says temporary folder can not be accessible..
    thank you in advance.

    Full name please

    I would still like the full name and what you mean by exe ?
    and temp files.
    Is exe a movie player ?
    Does it play where it was burned ? If so it wasn't burned to play anywhere
    else.You have to set this option before burning a cd or dvd.
    So whoever burned this to disk will have to do it again.
    Was it with Nero ? I can post the option location snapshot.
