why ShellExecuteEx failed, code 2 message?

November 4, 2010 at 19:52:22
Specs: Windows Vista

When I try to open most (not all) icons or exe files I am prompted with "Windows cannot find 'xxx'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." I have tried to Open as Administrator but get the same prompt. After downloading each fix that I find on the internet, I click on the repair exe files and get, "ShellExecuteEx failed, code 2. The system cannot find the file specified."

I had the same problem. Try 'Run as administrator'. Worked for me
