Placing files in "Program Files"

Sorry if I'm being a bit dense here, but I've got a program that works when the .exe is selected from the SD but when I copy and paste it into "my device/windows/start menu/programs" it begins to start then comes up with an error message "Unable to start. An error occurred acessing a file." It doesn't matter whether I remove the .exe from the SD card or not, it's always the same result. I know I could just install to main memory but I'd like to save some storage space on the SD. Any ideas peeps?

I suspect that what you are doing is copying the whole EXE file to the Programs folder, but that the program needs some other support of library files in it's parent folder to operate correctly- executing the file from Programs will fail because these support files aren't present.

Rather than copying the whole EXE file, you need to copy the file, as you've slrady done, but rather than ctrl-v to Paste it into Programs, navigate to the Windows/Start Menu/Programs folder, then tap Menu/Eidt/Paste Shortcut

Now the entry in prgrams will be a shrtcut to the actualo exe file, and its support files on the SD card
