That's not what it said.  The name of the directory is apparently this:

Documents and Settings\Amministratore\Desktop

So, it looks like you've got at least one strangely named directory
there (since it includes backslash characters).

The "Invalid argument" error is from your OS.  It most likely means that
the OS doesn't allow a backslash in the name of a file.
