Unable to open the file A:\xxxxx.xxx
The Floppy Device service has been stopped or disabled to increase system performance. Since Windows NT cannot read from the floppy drive, an error is generated.
Either restart the Floppy Device service or use an alternate path which does not rely on a floppy drive, such as a CD-ROM drive. To restart the Floppy Device services, use the Devices portion of Control Panel.
