I have an issue.

There is this message that appears each time I want to install the WD Smart ware: 

‘‘Windows cannot find ‘C/program files (86)/western digital/front parlor/wdsmartware.exe/Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.’’

What do I have to do to be able to install the Smart ware appropriately ?

Have you tried running the installation as the administrator? Also check if you are trying to install the latest Smatware version.

The updater software constantly pops up. Is there anyway I can ask it to stop showing up each time I open the smartware ?


Hi again, you can disable the software update notifications, go to settings // Software Updates //  and remove the check box for “Automatically check for WD Smartware software updates”
