In the German version of Windows Vista or Windows 7, when you type "C:\Programme" in the address bar and then press Enter, you will receive an access denied message that resembles: Auf C:\Programme kann nicht zugegriffen werden. Zugriff verweigert

Introduction

This problem occurs because of a missing link between the %programfiles% and the German mapping for C:\Programme.  The solution is relatively simple to implement in Windows 7 and all we need to do is relink the folder and system drive to the correct system variables.

It is worth knowing that in the German version of Windows "C:\Programme" is equivalent to the "C:\Program Files" folder on the English version of Windows.

Try this as a quick solution if you don’t want to follow the article completely and make the solution permanent.  If you only wish to browse to the folder try typing "C:\Programme\Windows NT" in the address bar and then press Enter, the folder appears as expected.

To fix the Auf C:\Programme kann nicht zugegriffen warden problem

  1. Click Start button and type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd.exe in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and press ENTER:
    cd /D %systemdrive%\
  3. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    rd Programme
  4. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    mklink /J Programme "%programfiles%"

Check if the problem is now fixed

Check whether the problem is fixed by typing C:\Programme in the address bar and then press Enter. If the "C:\Programme" folder appears, you have fixed the error.

Conclusion

This article described a method to restore the Auf C:\Programme kann nicht zugegriffen warden problem and allows you to once again browse the C:\Programme folder.
