    I can't get Kies to install on my Windows 7 Acer laptop. It gets so far, evaluates launch conditions - whatever the hell that means - then gives a dialog box for 'Error: -2 The system cannot find the file specified.'

    Does anyone know what this file might be, so I could go and find it? Or are there other things I should be trying?

    Thanks

    Sorry to bump this but I've had no replies and can't find an answer anywhere on the net. Anyone have any ideas? What might be the missing file?

    Thanks

    And this dialog does not tell you, what file is missing exactly? Sorry, I do not have any clue, what might be a problem. I can only tell, that I have Kies installed on my Winows 7 64bit and I had no problems with it.

    Only idea I have is to download it again and try again. It's not worth it IMO. I spent hours of pain and heartache and never could get the software to work reliably at all.

    I had same problem when trying to install the version downloaded directly from samsung.com. But I came across kies_win application from Download Samsung Kies for Windows 7 free - Windows 7 Download

    So I tried installing this one instead. Once installed, it would automatically look for update, which was the latest version that I previously had problem with.

    It's a long way to get the latest Kies version, but it works.

    Good luck!
