Sounds as if you don't have the access rights to access the executable file "nconvert.exe" or one of the image files.

What does the error message say exactly?

I got the same problem. When i am a simple user on XP, i can't run nconvert, but i can when i am an admin.
Is there a solution to run nconvert with simple user's rights?

Strange, you have no message from NConvert?

Yes, i got some.
When i run nconvert from cmd.exe, i get : "acces is denied".
When i run from explorer, I get ; "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item"

The error message "Access is denied" is not triggered by nconvert, it is an error message of Windows XP and means that you do not have the right/permission to access the file.

I assume that you use Windows XP Professional (not Home). Login as admin, then browse to the folder that contains "nconvert.exe" using MS Explorer, open the properties dialog (right mouse click, the menu item "Properties") and set the access rights to "All" or "Others" (or something like this). Login as normal user, again. Starting nconvert should work then.

OK, thank yuo for your help.
I've resolved the problem. I could'nt acces to the security properties from explorer on the station, but I can acces by the network. So nconvert.exe didn't have the rights for authenticated users. Now it got, so it works.

Thank you.
