Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file

After I started and installed all the software on the computer and got around to solving the bug.

I started by studying the keyboard layout menu and searching for interconnection, but when I entered the languages settings, the following error occurred:

Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the required permissions to access this object.

Here I’d added a bit because the second error related to languages and there was only one reason in my head, the assembly was not set to me clean.

But with modifications to the SSD drive and there was confidence that the author of this assembly was nosyachil somewhere.

Reinstalling Windows was absolutely unrealistic because it was not my plan to rearrange and tune the workplace for two days.

Because from Monday I will configure MikroTik RB4011iGS + RM and then install and configure Squid + HTTPS and besides.

I love and adore finding errors, and then solve them, even if it takes a week this time (for example, error 39 I was the first who decided it and described it on the Internet.

On my blog and I spent about a week on it and restored the system more than 20 times) and then my hands were scratched.

Because there were no answers on the Internet how to solve it, except gavnoblogs and rewrite gavnokontent.

Error: C: \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ SystemSettingsAdminFlows.exe

It was the first swallow which gave a clue and began to unwind the flywheel of the problem and its solutions.

The first thing that started to do is analyze this file and a clear text of the error ” Perhaps you do not have the necessary permissions to access this object ” put the same system and compared up to the hash of the sum between the two systems where the error crashed and where not. Looking ahead to say:

  1. all files were identical
  2. put the third system, the one that stands with me and the error does not crash on it (maybe it was just crookedly delivered to me)
  3. deleted the private letter from your company (it was necessary to make sure that it was not him who was blocking files)

but it was all in vain!

Windows Resource Protection did not detect integrity violations.

Then with the files, too, everything was ok! Moving on!

Logs and event viewers also failed.

Further, it was interesting, when entering the settings panel, namely, the network settings (I wanted to change the IP address), I got the same error:

Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the required permissions to access this object.

With the only difference that the path to the file has changed to control.exe

Error: C: \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ control.exe

For the note: the application control.exe is intended to call the control panel, and to call a specific application special keys are used:

keys for control.exe:

  • USERPASSWORDS2 – User Accounts ( where you can see passwords and network passwords)
  • USERPASSWORDS – User Accounts
  • NETCONNECTIONS – Network Connections
  • UPDATE – Windows Update
  • SYSTEM – System
  • ADMINTOOLS – Administration Folder
  • PRINTERS – Printers
  • PORTS – System Properties
  • DATE / TIME – Date and Time
  • DESKTOP – Personalization
  • FOLDERS – Folder Options
  • SCHEDTASKS – Equipment Task Scheduler
  • COLOR – Design Options
  • KEYBOARD – Properties: Keyboard
  • MOUSE – Properties: Mouse
  • SCANNERCAMERA – Scanners and Cameras
  • INFRARED – Infrared devices
  • TELEPHONY – Telephone and Modem
  • FONTS – Fonts
  • INTERNATIONAL – Language and Regional Standards

Who does not know what it is, then I will answer briefly, using the application, you can launch certain menus from the control panel via the command line, let’s open it via the command line:

  1. Printers and faxes (for this purpose it is enough to enter control PRINTERS)
  2. Or let’s open accounts for you to delete network passwords for folders and directories.
  3. and much more

So when I open the network settings (control NETCONNECTIONS) from the control panel, I also do not have access!

Already two errors with the rights, then this is no longer an accident!

Purely for the experiment, I decided to climb the toolbar and see where else there would be errors and caught it even when entering the settings of the desktop icons where the rundll32.exe error crashed

Error: C: \ WINDOWS \ system32 \ rundll32.exe

And again a mistake with the rights – three mistakes are already a regularity!

Solution to the problem

After the third error, I decided to log in as a local user and see if errors occurred because of the restriction of rights or not!?!

Logged in as local admin O MIRACLE! Errors: Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the required permissions to access this object. No longer crashes!

So this problem crashes only under users who are in the domain!

So you need to watch group policies and watch UAC (User Account Control):

To enter local policies, do the following:

  1. Push Win + R
  2. Type in the line command secpol.msc,
  3. go to the item “ “Local Policies” – “Security Options.”
  4. In the list, we find the policy ” User Account Control: Administrator Account for the Built-in Administrator Account and translate it into enable mode

We hope that everything works and say thank you.
