I have made a small game and uploaded it onto my website fine. And people have been able to download it no problems. But i uploaded a new version and people havnt' been able to download it, this message comes up ;- "cannot find the specified file. make sure the path and filename are correct" Any ideas folks. Other info - i have written it in C++ , borland compiler. The latest changes i made was to add sound effects. The program STILL runs on my PC, even if i download it from the website. I have tryed to comment out all of the recent changes i made and still no luck.

None of those changes you made will have any effect on people's ability to download it from the website.

Clearly you uploaded it to the wrong location: hence the very clear error message it gives stating exactly that.

What is the path to the file on your server? What is the path to the file in the download link?

How is it that you were able to figure out how to write a game in C++, etc., but don't understand file paths?

Just give us a link to the page that contains the "button link" and we can look at the source html and possibly determine the problem.
