    doesnt run on my computer, it points to
    this?--C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER9.tmp.dir00\appcompat.txt. can
    anyone explain it to me and is there a fix? is there something specifically
    wrong in my machine?

    C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp is a temporary folder. Empty it.

    The appcomp.txt file is created when there is a conflict between programs,
    drivers, etc. It is a reporting file used when uploading error reports to
    Microsoft.

    If you do not want to see appcomp.txt again, disable Error Reporting.

    Open System Properties...
    Start | Run | Type: sysdm.cpl | Click OK |
    Advanced tab | Error Reporting button | Check:
    Disable Error Reporting | Check: But notify
    me when critical errors occur | OK | Apply | OK

    Disable Error Reporting
    [[Select to disable error reporting. When this option is selected, error
    reports will not be generated.]]

    But notify me when critical errors occur
    [[Select this option to have Windows notify you when a critical error
    occurs, even if you have disabled Error Reporting.]]
